    My Private Note


    Serves: 21



    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 ounces almond paste
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
    • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/8 teaspoon extra-strong bitter almond oil or 1/8 teaspoon lemon oil (optional) or 1/8 teaspoon orange oil (optional)
    • confectioners' sugar or glazing sugar, for topping


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
    3. 3
      Blend the almond paste and sugar until the mixture forms fine crumbs; this is best done in a stand mixer.
    4. 4
      Add the egg whites gradually, while mixing, to make a smooth paste.
    5. 5
      Stir in the flavorings.
    6. 6
      Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared pans.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle the cookies heavily with confectioners' sugar, then use three fingers to press an indentation into the center of each cookie.
    8. 8
      Bake the cookies for 20 to 25 minutes, until they're brown around the edges. Remove them from the oven, and let them cool right on the pan.

      Amazing! My all time favorite cookie. The Unicersity Club in St Louis served a very similar cookie and I have been looking for years for a copy cat recipe and this is it! Crunchy, chewy and full of almond flavor.
