Ingredients

250 ml (1 cup) shelled, blanched almonds
3 bitter almonds
180 ml (¾ cup) sugar
2 egg whites
1 drop of almond essence

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C / 300°F.
  2. Grind almonds with a mortar and pestle or in a food processor.
  3. In a bowl, gently combine the ground almonds, sugar, egg whites and almond essence until uniformly blended.
  4. Butter and flour a cookie sheet. Drop dough by small spoonfuls onto the sheet, leaving plenty of room between cookies.

  6. Cool on a rack.

Tip: For best results, let dough sit for two to three hours before spooning onto cookie sheet.
