DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  • In a bowl combine eggs, 2 cups of sugar and almond extract and mix for 2-3 minutes.
  • Fold in the ground almonds. The mixture will be quite moist and sticky.
  • Shape into round balls (1 1/2” in diameter).
  • Place the remaining cup of sugar on a separate plate and roll the balls in the sugar.
  • Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper and place cookies on the baking tray.
  • Place one whole almond on top of cookie and press gently.
  • Bake for 12 minutes at 275 degrees F.
  • Allow to cool and place in an airtight container as the cookies should remain chewy and not dry and crunchy.
