Amaretti cookies!

I had been obsessing over almond cookies for quite a while now. As you know, I made some crunchy almond cookies a few weeks back, but I remained unsatisfied as I was looking for a chewy almond cookie, like the true Italian Amaretti cookies that I love so much! After trying 2 different recipes I was losing hope, but luck came my way, or perhaps just the blog Joy Of Baking, and I finally found THE recipe for Amaretti cookies. They are chewy and simply delicious! Your friends and family will think that you are a domestic goddess like Nigella (little do they know that this easy recipe only has 4 ingredients!). My batch of cookies must have stayed on my dining room table for about 5 minutes when the guests arrived. Luckily, I had stashed a few away 🙂


2 cups of almond flour
1 c white sugar (superfine sugar)
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon of almond extract


-Preheat oven to 300 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

-Beat the egg whites until they become firm (2 minutes)

-Mix together the almond flour and sugar. Add the vanilla and almond extract and pulse for a few seconds. Add the eggs.

-Take a tablespoon of the dough and roll it into  a ball. Put it on the parchment paper and flatten it slightly with a spoon (or your finger) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving.

Note: I changed the recipe so if you would like the original version, go to the Joy the Baker blog…
