Almond biscuits

These are a follow up from the Kransekake I made (https://cookingfortheloveofit.wordpress.com/?s=Kransekake). I had some of the dough left over and froze it, it freezes well! So decided to make some biscuits.

I rolled out the dough and used a 2” cutter then baked them at gas 6 (200C) for 10 minutes.

For the filling I used 112g icing sugar, 50g softened butter and 3 tablespoons of Amaretto, beaten well together then sandwiched the biscuits together. It made 12 biscuits.

Are they good? Oh yeahhhhhh!!
