Chewy Almond Biscuits with Buttercream Icing

We needed dessert.

We ended up with posh oreos.

This recipe is from the Great British Bake Off 2015 calendar (which has the optional addition of apricot jam), and is surprisingly easy to make given how satisfying they look. The recipe produced far too much buttercream icing (and how I wish I’d thought to put the left-over icing in the fridge for a possible cake later in the week) and some matching was required to pair up similar sized biscuits to sandwich together.

Still hungry following lunch – reason enough to bake almond biscuits.
