    • Cooking time: 18 minutes to 20 minutes
    • Total time: 33 minutes to 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Makes: 28

    Ingredients

    • 2 Medium egg whites
    • 2 tbsp Clear honey
    • 175g Icing sugar, plus extra for rolling and dusting
    • ½ tsp Baking powder
    • 3 tbsp Wheat-free and gluten-free plain flour
    • 1 Orange, zest
    • 50g Chopped mixed peel
    • 250g Blanched almonds

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 120°C/gas ¾ and line 2 baking trays with greased baking parchment. In a food processor, blend all the ingredients except the egg whites until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Stir them into the almond mixture to form a soft dough.
    2. Sprinkle icing sugar over the work surface and roll the dough with lightly dusted hands into a flat sausage roughly 2.5cm high and 5cm wide. Cut the sausage into 1cm-thick slices and place on the baking trays. Dust with icing sugar and bake for 18–20 minutes or until they are the colour of straw. Cool on a wire rack and dust with more icing sugar.
