Notes... This is a great way to use the egg yolks left over when you make almond bread ! And you have two treats on hand !

  • Will give it a go. Thanks for the recipe.


  • I tried this recipe and my husband loved it. Thank you for sharing.

    Left over egg yolks from pav.
    Which worked out well as I got two treats in one ????

  • Thanks to this mum member. An easy one for 4ur old.

    • You’re welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it !


  • It’s good to have a few recipes that need either just egg whites or yolks.


  • They look delicious!


  • Perfect for Xmas after noon snacks


  • After making Pavlovas, is a great way to use the yolks!

    • It’s always handy to have another recipe that uses ingredients you don’t need and will otherwise just get wasted!

      • I know ! I never knew what to do with all the yolks left over from the almond bread !


  • These are such a simple biscuit, but they taste really nice. I love the simplicity of how easy they are to make! Thanks for sharing
