directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Break the almond paste into small pieces and place in bowl of electric mixer along with the sugar.
  • Mix on low speed until very fine.
  • Add the egg whites in three additions, mix well after each addition.
  • Continue mixing the dough until very smooth, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Place a tablespoon of dough on the cookie sheet (space them 1 inch apart).
  • Lightly press the top of each cookie to smooth out the surface.
  • Sprinkle a little sugar on top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cookies have risen, are a deep golden color and have tiny cracks.
  • Remove from the oven.
  • When cool gently peel cookies from parchment.
  • Note: If they stick to the parchment, turn the paper over, take a damp paper towel and gently wipe the bottom of the parchment paper to loosen the cookie.

    While I really enjoy the taste of the cookies, (and so did everyone else!!) they turned out kind of flat. I couldn't find canned almond paste, so I used the boxed (Solo brand). Was this the problem? Any suggestions to correct this would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    Hi Everyone! Can anyone tell me how long in advance I can make these cookies? I want to give them as part of my daughters bridal shower favor and I would prefer not to wait to the last minute. Thanks for any help!

    I love Amaretti cookies! My biggest complaint about most recipes is that they are missing that almond flavoring I crave. This recipe fills that bill to a tee! I wound up having to freeze them to keep me from eatting every last one of them. These little gems are mindboggling delicious! Next time I may add some pine nuts to garnish them. Yum! Made for Spring 2012 PAC.

    These didn't make anywhere near 3 1/2 dozen. I used a 1Tbs. measuring spoon, and got 16 cookies. If I would have know, I would have doubled the batch.

    These were so easy to make and came out perfect! I found that mixing the almond paste and sugar worked better using my hand than the mixer to work out the clumps and get it to a fine consistency. Other than that they cooked up perfectly...crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Delicious! I only got 2 dozen out of the recipe though.
