Almond Meringue Cookies

Method

1st method – with meringue

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F).
  • Beat the almonds, sugar and salt in a food processor, until they are finely ground. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Beat the egg whites along with a pinch of salt with the whisk attachment, until you create a nice, fluffy meringue.
  • Add the meringue, gradually, to the bowl with the ground almond mixture. Mix gently with a spatula, until thoroughly combined.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add a heaping tablespoonful of the mixture at a time to the baking sheet, leaving enough space between them. They should be quite large. (About 6 cookies to each baking sheet.)
  • Place a whole almond in the center of each cookie. Press down on it lightly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve.

2nd method – without meringue

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F).
  • Beat the almonds, sugar and salt in a food processor, until they are finely ground. Add the egg whites. Beat until completely combined and a homogenous mixture has formed.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add a heaping tablespoonful of the mixture at a time to the baking sheet, leaving enough space between them. They should be quite large. (About 6 cookies to each baking sheet.)
  • Place a whole almond in the center of each cookie. Press down on it lightly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve.

Tip

Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for a while before putting them in the oven. This will help them take on a nicer shape!
