Passover Almond Macaroons

Recipe by Mirj2338
READY IN: 1hr 10mins


  • 4
    egg yolks
  • 1
    cup sugar (250 milliliter)
  • 2
    cups ground almonds (500 milliliter)


  • Beat egg yolks well.
  • Add sugar, and beat until mixture is lemon colored.
  • Add the ground almonds and mix thoroughly.
  • Chill for one hour in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
  • Take small pieces of the mixture and shape into small balls.
  • (I used a melon baller, for a 5/8-3/4" diameter cookie).
  • Place the macaroons on a greased baking sheet, 1 inch apart.
  • Top with half an almond.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Notes: These cookies spread.
  • I have made up to a triple batch with good results.
  • Be careful if using a food processor to powder the almonds.
  • They seem to turn the nuts into almond butter, rather than a flour-like consistency.
