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.
