Weigh out 300 g caster sugar. Set aside.
|2||Weigh out 350 g ground almonds. Set aside.||2 min.|
|3||Beat 4 egg whites. Halfway through, while still beating, add 2 tablespoonsful taken from the 300 g caster sugar.||3 min.|
|4||When the egg whites are fully beaten and glossy, reduce the speed slightly and gradually add the rest of the sugar.||3 min.|
|5||When all the sugar is mixed in, stop beating and tip in the ground almonds, all in one go, with 3 drops bitter almond essence.||1 min.|
|6||Fold in gently with a soft spatula...||4 min.|
|7||...until evenly mixed. Do not mix for too long as there is no need to mix really thoroughly.|
Form the amaretti
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
Make the amaretti straight onto a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet. It is best to pipe them, using a forcing bag, but you can shape them with 2 teaspoons instead; the shape will just be less regular.
|9||If your amaretti have points on the top, you can smooth these down with a teaspoon dipped in milk.||2 min.|
|10||Dust with icing sugar if desired.||1 min.|
Cook the amarettiBake for about 40 minutes, until the amaretti are just beginning to take on a creamy colour.
