DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Sift flour and salt.
  • In a large mixer bowl, beat butter or margarine with electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.
  • Add sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks and vanilla; beat well.
  • Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture and beat until well combined.
  • Cover and chill 1 hour.
  • For almond paste filling:
  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until stiff peaks form
  • Fold in ground almonds.
  • Set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough to about 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Cut into 3 inch circles (I use a glass).
  • Place 1 rounded teaspoon of the almond filling in center of each.
  • Fold up and pinch 3 sides to form a 3 cornered hat, leaving the top of filling exposed.
  • Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet, no need to grease, I do however use parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool on wire rack.
