Hazelnut, orange and chocolate biscuits

Wasn't sure whether to post this, since I'm now writing a cook book (of sorts...) and wondered whether I should keep the new recipes to myself....but this is too yummy not to share, and quite similar to my previous biscuit recipes so here it is:

70g melted butter
mix in: 30-50g sugar (to taste)
100g ground almonds
1 egg yolk
15g chopped roasted hazelnuts
1 tsp orange essence
25g dark chocolate chips
1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder

mix it all together - it should form one big lump or ball in your bowl once thoroughly mixed. Divide into 16 equal sized bits, roll into balls and place on a greased and lined baking tray. I don't squish these at all, just leave them as balls:

Bake in a prewarmed oven at 160C (325F/GM3) for 20 minutes. Allow to cool on the tray before removing. Keep these in an airtight container and they keep for a couple of days then go soggy (they're still nice, but not as crunchy) ... saying that, they don't last that long in this house anyway....


  1. I love your recipes, and I think even if you post them here, it won't affect your cookbook. I'd love to buy your cookbook - just to have all your delish recipes in a comprehensive book up on my shelf!

    Thanks for all your recipes. We're gluten free and are addicted to your brownies. :-)

  2. thanks for commenting - its always lovely to get feedback and to know that people are trying out the recipes...the book is coming along, and is all types of recipes not just cakes (although there is a large cake chapter forming...) I'll be posting on here once its complete :-)

  3. Great to hear. I look forward to it.
