Jamie's Easy Gluten-Free
Marmalade - Pine Nut - Cherry Cookies



Makes: 12
Preparation: 10 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins


200g packet Almond Meal
2 tablespoons gluten free cornflour
¼ cup caster sugar
¼ cup Breakfast Marmalade, plus 1 tablespoon for glazing
1 large egg white
65g Pine Nuts or 55g Flaked Almonds
12 red glace cherries



Preheat oven to 170ºC conventional (150ºC fan-forced) oven.  Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Combine the almond meal, cornflour, sugar, marmalade, a tiny pinch of salt and egg white in a food processor and process until mixture just comes together.  The mixture will be sticky.

Place the pine nuts or almonds in a small bowl.

Take 2 teaspoons of mixture and roll into balls.  Roll each in the pine nuts or almonds to lightly coat.  Place on tray evenly spaced.  Push a cherry into the centre of each.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, until firm and pale golden in color.  Allow to cool on baking sheet.

Heat extra tablespoon of marmalade and brush over biscuits to glaze. 

Best eaten on day they are made or store in an airtight container.  If you want to make smaller ones (24) roll 1 teaspoon of mixture into balls and use 24 cherries.
