If you don’t like sherry, you can replace it with another Christmassy spirit (not the ghost of Christmas past kind…) or even orange juice.

  1. How do you store these? Will they keep in a tin or do you have to freeze them so that they can be eaten nearer Christmas?

  2. Hello. Would love to try and make these and went to Holland and Barrett to try and buy the Sukrin Almond Flour but they didn’t have it. Is it ok to use any almond flour please? Thank you.
