Crunchy Almond Cookies!

I tasted these Swedish almond cookies on New Year’s Eve. My friend Simon held a Swedish themed potluck party, every dish was Sweden inspired and these cookies gathered ALL my attention at the table. I immediately urged my friend Melanie (the author of these tasty treats) to give me the recipe!

This easy recipe only has 4 ingredients, and the lack of flour and butter gives them that Amaretti/biscotti edge! They remind me of those crunchy Italian walnut cookies that are usually served with coffee.


-2 cups of almonds, chopped (I actually used 1 c. of presliced ones, and 1 c. of grinded almonds)

-3/4 cup packed brown sugar

-2 tablespoons of flour, sifted

-2 egg whites

-1 t s. almond or vanilla extract (optional)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Whip/beat egg whites until stiff and fluffy. Fold in brown sugar, flour and almonds and almond extract. The mixture will look like wet almonds, I was a bit worried, but then when it cooks it has a meringue/crunchy effect.

Place little blobs of the cookie dough on your cookie sheet for about 25 minutes!

I made these cookies yesterday, and there are only 4 left. I also gave some to a friend as a birthday gift!
