Scotland is famous for rich, mouth-wateringly short biscuits, and these are no exception. A scattering of almonds on top adds interest but otherwise the biscuits rely on good, simple ingredients, like butter and egg, for their wholesome flavour.
Servings: 25 biscuits
Calories: 90


  • 8 oz plain flour
  • 4 oz butter diced
  • 2 oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg separated
  • 2 oz flaked almonds chopped


  • Put the flour in a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and mix well, then stir in the egg yolk to bind the mixture together.
  • Knead lightly, then roll out on a lightly floured surface until about 0.5 cm (1/4 inch) thick. Prick with a fork, then cut out 5 cm (2 inch) rounds with a plain cutter.
  • Place the rounds on greased baking sheets, brush with the egg white and sprinkle with the almonds. Bake at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 25 -30 minutes, until pale golden brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container.
