      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C fan
  2. Chop raw almonds 20 seconds speed 7 to make almond meal.
    Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place lemon zest and raw suagr in bowl then mill 20 seconds speed 10. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  4. Add in 180 g of the almond meal and mix 10 seconds speed 4
  5. Without measuring cup, turn speed selector to 3 and slowly add the egg whites a little at a time, pausing briefly between each pour. Continue until well mixed and a slack dough forms.
  6. Test dough by dropping a heaped teaspoon onto a ThermoMat or bench top well dusted with icing sugar. Dust your hands and form the dough into a ball. When set down it should hold its shape at first, then slowly start to collapse a little. If it is too slack add the rest of the almond meal and mix a further 10 seconds speed 3.
  7. Form the dough into 16 balls and place, well spaced out on an oven ThermoMat or tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
    Gently top each ball with a blanched almond
  8. Bake 17-20 mins at 160 degrees C fan, until golden brown.
    Transfer to a rack to cool.
  9. The finished amaretti biscuits should be crunchy on the outside and squidgy in the centre.
  10. Enjoy with an espresso coffee.
