Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

3-1/2 cups ground almonds (measure after grinding)
1-1/2 cup white sugar
4 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine almonds and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract into almond/sugar mixture. Prepare a cookie sheet by either greasing it or by placing a sheet of aluminum foil on it. Change foil for each batch or regrease sheet. Use a teaspoon to mound small amounts of batter on cookie sheet, at least two inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes, just until cookie is set and bottom is lightly browned.
