Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Cream the margarine (
or butter) and sugar together until light, white and fluffy. Beat in the
egg and almond essence. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients to make a stiff
dough. Form the mixture into balls about 1 – 1.5 inch diameter and place
these on a greased baking tray. Place half an almond (split lengthways) on
each ball and press to flatten slightly. Brush with beaten egg. Bake in a
moderate oven (350 deg F / 180 deg C) for 20 minutes or until golden. Cool
on a wire rack. This quantity makes about 45 biscuits.
