    Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add the egg yolks one at a time and stir in with the almond extract. Beat well.

  3. Step 3:

    Sieve in the self-raising flour and ground almonds and mix gently. Beat the egg whites in a clean, grease-free bowl until very stiff and then fold into the mixture.
