Food week - Monday: Cantuccini cookies

This week is dedicated to food. I will cook and bake all my most loved dishes. Monday starts with the famous Italian cantuccini cookies. Which is absolutely gorgeous stuff and quick and easy to make.


3 eggs
150 g sugar
vanilla flavoured essence (or the real stuff)
250 g plain flour
1.5 Tsp baking soda
120 g whole almonds

Beat the eggs with the sugar and the vanilla essence. Then add the baking soda to the flour and mix it under the eggs. In the end add the almonds. If the dough is too creamy add a bit more flour.
Then form two rolls out of the dough and place them on a baking tray with baking paper. Bake them for 30 minutes at 160 degrees in a preheated oven.
Take the rolls out of the oven and let them cool down. Then cut them into 1 cm thick slices. Put the slices on the baking tray again and bake them again for 5-10 minutes from each side.
