Gaby's Bakery - Almond & Lemon Pesach Cookies

This delicious gluten-free Passover treat is a variant to many of the sweet recipes from the Mediterranean and Middle East. Best of all it's quick and easy to make.

Almond & Lemon Pesach Cookies

Ingredients:
335g ground almonds
185g icing sugar (plus extra for coating the cookies)
3 egg whites
Zest of 1½ lemons
¾ tsp almonds extract
¾ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder

Method:
Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

In a large bowl mix the ground almonds, icing sugar, baking powder and lemon zest. Place the eggs whites in another large bowl and whisk until you have soft peaks, (don’t over whisk). Fold the almond mixture into the egg whites along with the almond and vanilla extract.

Wet your hands slightly and then take dessert spoonfuls of the mixture, (appx 25g) and shape them into large rectangles. Place them on the prepared tray with a little space between each. Leave the cookies to rest for an hour at room temp.

Preheat oven to 150⁰c. Bake the cookies for appx 15 minutes, they will be lightly golden and slightly soft to the touch, they will harden as they cool and should be fudge like in the centre. Place some icing sugar in a bowl.

Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes, then drop each one into the bowl of icing sugar and coat. 

Enjoy.

Coupe Sauvage was the brief. That French term from the 1970s encapsulating all lengths of very layered, textured, vibrant styles that hinted at the sexuality of wild, rampant and raw. And growing out tint isn't always successful, most people return to having colour, but Julie's was a rare case where the...

Where were you standing when you decided to adjust your hair colour? Do you stand there often?

At the first salon I worked as a junior, back in the last century, the colourists at the salon had an interesting technique for showing clients their finished results; escorting them to the ladies toilet where a single electric wall light seemed to cast a favourable glow.
