I then turned to Short and Sweet, and again using the useful index from Pecan Nuts arrived at the Orange almond butter biscuits. I made half the quantity with his suggestion of substituting pecans for the almonds. I made then 20g each, but as they are fairly rich, well very rich and tasty and more the petitfour type of nibble to go with after dinner coffee, two needed...I would make then 15g each next time.
I love these and the orange zest works well too. I think this would be a great treat to take to dinner at friends, or for Christmas. I love the tossing in icing sugar as they cooled..a bit messy, but hey no one was looking! And it was a reason to wash down everything on the counter afterwards.
