Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash almond extract
  • 1 egg yolk beaten

Method

On work surface, combine granulated sugar, icing sugar and ground almonds; make well in centre. Add lemon juice, almond extract and egg yolk to make stiff but manageable dough. Turn onto lightly sugared surface; knead until smooth (over-kneading will turn dough oily). Roll out to cover cake.
