Almond and Raspberry Biscuits

I forgot to buy biscuits... and my sweet tooth was calling while I was finishing the second draft of my research proposal. So I quickly whipped up a batch of these. So easy and very tasty!

Almond and Raspberry Biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
125g butter/marg

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
Some Orange zest 
(though I used the juice of a clementine...)

3/4 cup Almond Meal
1 cup plain flour

Raspberries or jam

Cream together sugar and fat, then slowly add the eggs and other wet ingredients.
Fold in dry ingredients

Spoon out onto baking tray in about 1 inch wide blobs (mine spread- beware!)
Put a raspberry or a small blob of jam into the middle
Mine made maybe 25. I'm not sure. I ate lots before counting!

Cook in oven at 190 til slightly browned.

Very tasty, but very moreish!
You could also add slivered almonds for an extra nut hit and a different texture.
