I have been very busy on social media, researching and putting together business plans, before we launch my new business. All this besides finishing off my current job.
Staying normal at home is hot work, Cape Town has had a 2 week heat wave, so keeping it cool physically and emotionally is almost a full time job in its self.
Almonds are one of the most nutritious of all nuts.They are low in saturated fat and contain many other protective nutrients, said to protect against cardiovascular disease and even cancer. They also build strong bones and teeth. Still trying to find if they can calm my nerves though.
All that aside, these biscuits taste very good indeed and are wonderfully crispy and nutty. The almond flavour comes through as nutty and not like marzipan. My little grandson loves them too - his endorsement is "more", which means "don't think only one is going to work for me Granny!".

125g Soft Butter
125g Almond Butter

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease 2 baking sheets.

Add the egg and the vanilla.
Sift in the flours, bi-carb and baking powder. Mix well.
Stir in the chopped almonds.
Roll into walnut sized balls and place on the sheet. Flatten with your fingers.
These biscuits do spread a little, so don't place them too close together.
Bake for 12 - 15mins until they are golden brown on the edges.
