Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces candied orange peel
  • 4 ounces ground almonds
  • 4 ounces superfine sugar
  • 4 ounces flour
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° C).
  2. Line several baking trays with parchment paper.
  3. Chop the orange peel very finely and put in a bowl. Add the almonds and sugar and sift in the flour, reserving 1 tbs (15 ml). Mix well together, then add enough milk to form a smooth, firm dough.
  4. Roll the mixture into 24 small balls and place, well apart, on the baking trays.
  5. Sprinkle with the remaining flour.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
  7. Melt the chocolate and use a little to sandwich the cookies together in pairs.
  8. That's it!
