We recently went to a dinner party, and a friend told me she found my blog by searching for the recipe for Almond Paste Cookies. My mom has been making her almond paste cookies for over forty years, and they are enjoyed by all. I'm posting the recipe again in case you are starting your cookie list for 2013. Enjoy!
Mom's Almond Paste Cookies
1/2 lb. almond paste
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp. flour
3 egg whites
1/3 cup powdered sugar
l lb. pine nuts (you can also use walnuts or sliced almonds)
Mix almond paste, adding sugar slowly. Use fork or finger tips. Add egg whites, when well blended, add flour and powdered sugar which has been sifted. Roll a teaspoon of dough into a dish of nuts. Place on well-greased cookie sheet. I used parchment paper and then sprayed it with Pam. Remove while still warm with a spatula. If the batter is allowed to chill, it will be easier to handle.
Bake 300 degrees for about 30 min. I take mine out when the edges start showing a golden brown. Don't overbake.
Thanks for stopping by!
