Serves: 24 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup 93g / 3.3ozToasted almonds
3 cups 594g / 20ozEgg whites (large)
2/3 cup 131g / 4.6ozSugar

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grind almonds to a fine paste in electric blender or mortar. Mix with sugar and add egg whites beaten just enough to blend. The mixture should be thick enough to hold the shape of a cookie when dropped from a spoon.
