A light and flaky cookie made with ground almonds and cinnamon and rolled in confectioner's sugar. I haven't made these yet, but thought they sounded interesting. Found on the Pogo game site.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the almonds, sugar and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.
  2. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until they begin to stiffen.
  3. Fold whisked egg whites into the dry mixture until the combination is fairly firm.
  4. Use your hands to roll the mixture into pecan-sized balls and place these onto a greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  6. Remove from oven and use a metal spatula to separate the balls from the baking sheet before they cool too much.
  7. Once the cinnamon balls are completely cooled, gently roll each ball in confectioner's sugar until it is completely coated in sugar.

These are interesting. Not really what I expected. I found the cinnamon a bit to strong, and the texture reminds me of rice crispy treats.
