This month we share our recipe for Nick-bix (pg. 123 of the recipe book) – because they are a tasty biscuit made by the lovely family from Jonima Flowers.
A favourite of the Jonima Flowers team, these biscuits are a sponge biscuit which can be dressed up. They are cooked by Nicola, the eldest of the four children in the family, hence the name Nick-bix.
– Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
– Put the eggs and oil into a bowl and beat with a fork until combined. Add lemon zest, vanilla paste and sugar and mix. You will now have to use a wooden spoon because it gets thick. Start gradually adding the flour. Continue adding flour until the spoon is able to stand up straight in the mixture.
– Put the ground almonds into a separate tray. Scoop a teaspoon of the mixture and use another teaspoon to help put it onto the ground almonds. Cover with almonds. Roll biscuit into a ball and put it on a tray lined with baking paper. Put into the over for 10-15 minutes.
– Variation: You can use icing sugar instead of almonds but you have to sift it first. You can make any shapes you like.
