How to make it

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (350°F) Gas Mark 4.
  • Grease several large baking trays.
  • Finely grind the Amaretti biscuits and chop the figs.
  • Put in a bowl with all the remaining ingredients except the egg white, wine and icing sugar.
  • Make a well in the center and add the egg white and wine and mix to form a stiff dough.
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead vigorously for about 10 minutes. (The dough will become stickier when kneaded.)
  • Shape the dough into flat cookies, the size of chestnuts, and place on the prepared baking trays.
  • Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until dry and the surface is slightly cracked.
  • Transfer onto a wire rack and leave to cool.
  • Sprinkle with sifted icing sugar before serving.
  • Store in an airtight tin. Makes about 28 cookies.

    Love the different flavours and textures in this. The figs and lemon are an interesting addition!

    Can't wait to give these a try. The house will smell soooooo yummmy as these bake up, i'm sure. (full of cinnamony, spicy scents)

    Thanks for this. :)
