Blend everything - except the icing sugar - in a food processor until it clumps together.
Chill mix for one hour, if time permits, to make rolling easier. Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into balls then roll heavily in icing sugar... that's HEAVILY until the layer is thick, white and loose! Do not flatten.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 10 minutes on greased baking trays.
