CHRISTMAS decorations and music are filling the streets of Middlesbrough, making it hard to ignore the fact that Christmas is just around the corner.
It’s a time of year when people make lists of things to buy and if you’re a student, you are probably doing it on a budget!
So why not twist the tradition a little bit and instead of considering buying a gift for everyone, bake something instead.
By injecting a little Spanish Christmas tradition you can make a delicious, light and cheap dessert that everyone will love.
Here Tside introduces to you the Polvorones – or as they are known in Spain, Almond cookies. Make, share and enjoy them!
Ingredients and equipment you will need:
190g plain white flour
96 g cup ground almonds
120g butter or margarine
96g granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Large mixing bowl
- Firstly preheat the oven to 350 C then reduce it to 250C after eight minutes. Meanwhile slightly toast the flour in a pan on medium heat for eight minutes then leave to cool down.
2. Once your cookies are ready to be cooked on a tray , leave them in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 250 C.
