  • 75g soft light brown sugar
  • good pinch sea salt flakes
  • 1½ tbsp plain flour
  • 100g toasted flaked almond

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Melt the butter, sugar and a good pinch of sea salt in a large pan until combined and bubbling – don’t let this get too dark. Add the flour and almonds, and stir until coated in the buttery liquid.

  2. Working quickly, spoon 6 mounds of the almond mixture onto the baking tray, spaced a little apart. Gently press down with the back of a spoon to flatten, then sprinkle with a little extra salt. Bake for 10 mins, then allow to cool before serving with strawberry panna cotta - see 'goes well with', right.

These were delicious, but even though I followed the recipe exactly I found that the six 'mounds' spread out and merged into one in the oven. No matter though - as soon as they came out of the oven I encouraged them into neat squares with a knife, and left them to cool and set. They were lovely, and very more-ish. I would make them again, but would probably dial the sugar down to 50g and dial the flour up to 2 tbsp. A good, quick solution to a lack of biscuits, and the sort of thing I always have the ingredients for lying around.

These were delicious! I served with chocolate mousse, perfectly sweet and salty, nice snappy texture, just lovely!

I'm not quite sure what happened here? The recipe was really easy to follow but instead of my almond snaps coming out as six individuals they merged into one...maybe more flour was needed?

Made these to accompany the strawberry panna cotta as suggested in the magazine, but a couple of them fell apart a bit. I think perhaps I didn't work quickly enough on the 'working quickly' bit in step 2! A touch overly sweet too. They were ok but not sure I'd make again.

Could the flour be replaced for cornflour or another gluten free equivalent? I would love to make these for work but have a colleague who is has coeliac disease.
