Ingredients

  • Egg- 1 medium

  • Granulated sugar- 63 grams

  • Lime juice- 1/2 tsp (optional)

  • Vanilla extract- 1/2 tsp (optional)

  • Ground almonds- 150 gms

  • Fine semolina- 40 gms

  • Baking powder- 1/2 tsp

  • Vegetable oil- 1 tbsp

  • Powdered sugar- to roll the cookies

Directions

Beat the egg and sugar together in a mixing bowl till pale yellow. I used my hand whisk to do this, but feel free to use a hand blender if you please. Add the lime juice and vanilla extract to it and continue whisking till well mixed. Throw in the ground almonds, semolina and baking powder one after the other and fold it all in using a spatula. The mix would be slightly coarse, but that's ok. Just make sure you mix it well. Pour the vegetable oil and give a thorough mix till they all come together. You can either chuck the bowl into the refrigerator for a couple of minutes for the dough to set which would make it easier to roll, but I didnt need to do this as the dough was of perfect consistency. Even after you have refrigerated, if your mix still is a little too loose, just add more semolina, or if its too thick, loosen it up with a few drops of milk. In the mean time, preheat your oven to 160C and get the baking tray ready with baking paper. Put a couple of spoons of powdered sugar on a plate and start rolling the dough. Wet you hands lightly and make small balls with the dough (about half tbsp per ball) and roll in icing sugar. The ball should be completely covered with icing sugar. place them about an inch apart on the baking sheet. The cookies expand when baking and the icing sugar cracks giving it that crinkly top effect. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool for about 5 minutes after which you can (eat them non stop or) transfer on to a wire rack and cool completely before storing in air tight containers or zip lock bags.
