Specialty Recipe

Toasted Almond Macaroon Cookies

1 cup (4-1/2 ounces/140 grams) slivered blanched almonds, lightly toasted
2/3 cup (5 ounces/155 grams) granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon all-purpose (plain) flour
1 egg white
1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
about 16 whole almonds

Note: You must use the egg white from a large egg to achieve the correct consistency for the dough. If you happen to overbake these macaroons and they become a bit dry, place in an airtight container with an apple slice and let them sit overnight to soften.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the slivered almonds in a food processor fitted with the metal blade and process finely (do not process to a paste). Add the sugar and flour and process to a powder. Add the egg white, vanilla extract, and almond extract, and process until a wet paste forms. Using damp hands, roll the dough between your palms to form 1-inch (2.5-cm) balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Place a whole almond in the center of each. Bake until just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Gently peel off the foil and transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
