Small, Round, Pale Golden Italian Cookies with a Soft, Lightly Chewy Center.
- 1 cup - blanched almonds
- 2/3 cup - Domino® Granulated Sugar
- 5 teaspoons - all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon - salt
- 2 - egg whites
- 3/4 teaspoon - almond extract
- Domino® Confectioners Sugar for sifting
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Using food processor, grind almonds, granulated sugar, flour, and salt into a fine meal. Place ground almond mixture in a large bowl and add egg whites and almond extract. Mix with rubber spatula until combined. Drop dough by teaspoons onto sheets about 1½ inches apart. If desired, sift confectioners' sugar over cookies before baking. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through; when Amaretti are done baking, edges will be golden brown. Cool sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes before transferring cookies with metal spatula onto wire racks to finish cooling.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
