Title: Amaretti cookies
Categories: Ew, Text, Import
Yield: 1 Servings
1 1/4 c Blanched and lightly toasted
3/4 c Powdered sugar
2 ts All-purpose flour
2 lg Egg whites
1/3 c Granulated sugar
1 ts Grated lemon zest
1 ts Almond extract
In a food processor, grind the almonds to a powder by pulsing off and
on to keep the powder loose. Mix the almonds with the powdered sugar
and flour. In a separate a bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks.
Gradually beat in the granulated sugar until stiff. Fold in the lemon
zest and almond extract. Pipe the mixture with a pastry bag using a
round 1/4-inch tip into 1 1/2-inch rounds onto baking sheets lined
with lightly buttered waxed paper or parchment. Bake in a preheated
275-degree oven for 1 hour, checking to make sure the amaretti don't
brown. Turn off the oven and let the amaretti dry out for an
additional hour--they should be very crisp. Store them in an airtight
container in the refrigerator or freezer.
Yield: Approximately 24 cookies
