Preparation

Preparation steps

Step 1/6

Soak raisins in rum.

Step 2/6

Gently toast almonds in a hot frying pan. Remove and cool.

Step 3/6

Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).

Step 4/6

Mix flour with sugar, spices, a pinch of salt, baking powder, almond extract, 3 eggs and Amaretto in a bowl. Knead into a smooth dough. Drain raisins and add to dough, along with almonds. If dough is too sticky, add more flour.

Step 5/6

Divide dough into 5 equal portions. Form rolls that are 3 cm (approximately 1 in) wide. Sprinkle with flour and let stand briefly. Whisk remaining egg. Place dough rolls on a baking sheet lined with baking paper with about 5 cm (approximately 2 inches) between them. Brush with egg and bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Remove, cool slightly and slice diagonally into 1 cm (approximately .5 in) thick slices. Place appropriately on baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 160°C (approximately 320°F).

Step 6/6

Let biscuits cool and serve.
