Biscotti di mandorle ed arancia

It's sugar time!!!

I love savory but sometimes crunching a cookie or nibbling a piece of cake is a priceless and deep moment of pure pleasure!

Let's start with these cookies that are a good breakfast or tea option.

150 gr almond powder
150 gr powdered sugar
a little pinch of baking powder
2 egg whites
orange zest

Begin whisking the egg whites, when foamy, begin slowly adding the sugar to the mixture till glossy medium-hard peaks.
Use a spatula to gently fold in the almond powder, the pinch of baking powder then the orange zest.

Set a pot on the low-medium stove with the cookie mixture and stir for 10/ 12 till It is more yellow and sticky.

Using two tablespoons, gently dollop the cookie mixture into a wax paper-lined pan, leaving space around the individual cookies on all sides (about 12/15 cookies ).

Bake in a 160° C preheated oven for 10/12 min. Remove from the oven and let cool down.

Sprinkle powdered sugar and orange zest on cookies and keep them in a tin.
