I am so excited to bring to you today a wonderful Amaretti Cookie
Laura always has something yummy baking, and when I saw
this Amaretti recipe, I had to give it a try!
If you love a nice chewy cookie, then you'll love these!
They taste like a Macaron, but are much easier to prepare!
Another wonderful Italian Cookie that I made and loved was
These Amaretti are super easy and only take a few minutes to throw
together!! If you have a small cookie scoop, they go even faster!
After I scooped the mixture out, I rolled into balls, then
dropped into the powdered sugar to coat.
Bake for 15 minutes! Aren't they pretty?!
I added a sugar flower to the top of the cookies with just a tiny
bit of ready made frosting as glue! So pretty!
2 egg whites (60 grams) room temp
250 grams granulated sugar
200 grams almond flour
powdered sugar (icing sugar)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, sift together granulated sugar and almond
flour. In another bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks.
Add sugar/almond mixture to egg whites and combine.
Using a small cookie scoop (or your hands) form small balls and
roll in powdered sugar. Place balls on a parchment paper
lined baking sheet, leaving 1-inch space between cookies.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until tops are cracked and bottoms
of cookies are just golden.
Let cool slightly then transfer to a wire rack to cool
completely. Makes approximately 30 cookies.
**If you don't have a kitchen scale you need to get one!
It makes measuring ingredients so much easier! If a recipe
is in grams, you don't have to worry about figuring out
how many cups you will need etc.
I enjoyed several of these cookies with a nice cup of Vanilla Chai!
Thanks Laura for this wonderful recipe and for following my
blog so faithfully!!! xo!!!
