Put all the ingredients (except the whole almonds) in a bowl and work quickly, until you get a homogeneous dough.
Shape the dough to form thick cords, cut into pieces equal to each other and shape them to form balls the size of a walnut, then flatten them lightly.
Arrange the biscuits on the oven tray lined with parchment paper, separating them slightly from each other, and place an almond in the center of each biscuit, trying to embed it a little in the dough.
Bake for 12-15 minutes (or until golden brown) at 180 ° C, in a preheated convection oven.
The Santa Lucia biscuits are ready: let them cool down at least before serving.
