  • If you have a food processor add all the ingredients and blend until smooth. To make by hand cream together the sugar and butter until smooth and evenly combined. Beat in the egg and ground almonds then work in the flour until you have a smooth dough.

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/fan oven 180C/gas mark 6. Line 2 baking trays with parchment. Dust the work surface with a little Homepride flour and roll out the dough to around 1cm thick. Use cutters to make shapes and carefully transfer the biscuits to the trays. Bake for around 15 minutes until just golden round the edges. Leave on the trays to firm up before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
