Almond and Orange Passover Cookies

During the festival of Passover/Pesach, Jewish people refrain from eating grains that can ferment and become leavened. Because of this, they cannot eat the cakes (and bread) that they may usually have, and often opt to use almonds instead.

Of course, many of The Free From Black Book community are gluten or grain free, so this cake is great for you too.


1 1/2 cups of ground almonds

1/4 cup dairy free butter

1/4 cup sugar

2 table spoons of tahini

Splash of dairy free milk

One orange to zest and squeeze the juice of

Orange to decorate

Icing sugar to decorate


Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

In a bowl, mix the butter, ground almonds, sugar, tahini and milk

Zest the orange, then cut in half, squeezing out the juice and then mix

Roll the mixture into balls and then flatten on a baking paper covered tray

Cook for 20-25 minutes (or until golden)

Wait until cooled before dusting with icing sugar and adding a slice of orange (do note that the wetness of the orange slice, may cause the biscuit to go a bit soggy).
