6 ounces of sliced and blanched almonds (150 g)
1/2 cup & 3 Tbsp sugar
2 large egg whites
1 whole egg
2 Tbsp of flour

  • Preheat oven at 400°F
  • Mix the egg and the egg whites without beating. Add the sugar and the almonds.
  • Gently mix in the flour.
  • Let rest 20 minutes
  • Line a large cookie sheet with butter and flour.
  • Drop a tablespoon of mixture on the cookie sheet for each cookie. Leave plenty of space in between.
  • With the back of a fork spread the almonds flat to keep the cookies very thin.
  • Bake at 400°F until brown.
  • Gently lift the soft cookies with a wide spatula and put them on any round surface to cool. This gives them their shape (french bread pans are ideal cooling racks).
