Ratafia Biscuits
 
ratafia biscuits are used in making scotch trifle and as you may not be 
able to obtain them locally, here is how you can make them for yourself. 
ratafia essence is made from bitter almonds or the kernels of peaches or 
apricots. if you can't get this ingredient, use another suitable 
flavouring. another solution entirely is to use almond flavoured cookies 
or dried macaroons instead. 
 
 
2   egg whites
1 oz.  (25g) butter
  4oz (125g) ground almonds
  rice paper
  6oz (175g) castor sugar
1 Tbsp  flour
4   drops of ratafia essence
  rice paper
 
beat the egg whites until they are stiff. mix the butter and sugar, then 
add the flour and ground almonds. mix well and then fold into the egg 
whites and beat into a smooth paste. once it starts to stiffen, place in 
an icing bag with a plain pipe and place drops of around half an inch 
(1.2cm) on the rice paper, about 2 inches apart. bake at 350f (18oc or 
gas mark 4) for 15/20 minutes.
