Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday. I asked him what could I get him - he asked for these biscuits... and another jar of zucchini honey :-) In NZ 'today' is Tuesday Feb 1st. The blog posts in American time...




AMARETTI BISCUITS

3 cups ground almonds
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 egg whites
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven to 150c. Line a tray with baking paper.
Mix all the ingredients together
Roll small amounts into balls and place on the tray. These biscuits don't spread when they cook, so you can put them quite close together.
Bake 20 - 30 minutes. The longer you bake them, the crunchier they become. Dad likes them to be a bit chewy in the centre.

You have a very handosme father. He must have been a fireman. And that recipe sounds delicious...also, thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday. I wanted you to be sure I saw it and I still don't think people who comment know I respond top their comments...ah, well. And I'll bet NZ firemen are just as handsome as their NYC counterparts.....

I didn't realize blogspot posted the date as American time. I will check wordpress but I think they record the times as local. But that will explain why my flag counter is aways a day behind.
