Ingredients:

For the glaze:

Preparation:

Place ground almonds, flour, salt and sugar in a food processor and pulse until well combined.

Add  the half of the lard and pulse until well combined. Repeat with the other half and process until the mixture resembles chunky breadcrumbs.

Pour the mixture onto a clean surface and bring together the mixture to form a dough (the dough will be a bit crumbly).

Shape them (around the size of a golf ball), glaze and decorate.

Bake in a previously pre heated oven at 180°C for 15-20 mins.

Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
