Amaretti Cookies

Frankie Celenza

Made with almonds, these light, chewy Italian cookies are good for whenever.

Amaretti Cookies

Ingredients

  • 11/3 cup whole un-roasted almonds

  • 1/3 cup (50 grams sugar

  • 1 tablespoon almond paste (or more to taste)

  • 1 egg

  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat convection oven to 300°F.

  2. Add almonds, sugar and almond paste to a food processor and blend until fine. Taste to make sure it's extra almond-flavored; add more paste if needed. Add the egg and blend again.

  3. Use two spoons or a small ice cream scoop to make egg yolk-sized balls, and place them on a prepared baking sheet. Press down to slightly flatten cookies.

  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the color is just lighter than the almonds. Let cool slightly, then top with some powdered sugar and enjoy!
