1 lb ground almonds
¼ lb honey
3 ½ oz grated chocolate
6-8 tbs water
¾ lb sugar
In a bain marie (or a bowl over a saucepan of water) stir the almonds, honey, chocolate and water
until the mixture is all combined and it doesn't stick to the bowl.
Let it cool.
Roll out the dough thickly and use cutters or cut finger shapes,
then paint with the egg white and sprinkle the sugar over quite thickly.
Cook for 10-15min in a moderate oven.
This is thought to be a German recipe
