Chocolate Biscuits Ingredients
½ lb. icing sugar
2 oz. powdered chocolate
2 oz. ground almonds
whites of 2 eggs
How to make chocolate biscuits:
Pound the almonds and chocolate and mix them well with one white of egg. Add the sugar, vanilla essence to taste, and enough of the second white of egg to form a smooth paste. Put the paste into a lined saucepan, and, stirring all the time, heat until the mixture is lukewarm. Now, using a piping bag, force out small fancy-shaped biscuits on a tray which has been previously greased and floured.
Let the biscuits dry for three or four hours, and then bake them in a cool oven until crisp.
