Charlotte Drayton, who was a great baker at Ripe, shaped these little beauties for us. As well as being so cute they are wheat, gluten and dairy free.


  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom


Preheat oven to 170°C.

In a large bowl whisk together the sugar and egg whites. Add cardamom and ground nuts and stir with a spoon until thick and quite firm.

Sprinkle a little rose water on your hands then roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into large walnut sized balls.</
