ALMOND MACAROONS
From: Jewish Cooking Boot Camp - Andrea Marks Carneiro & Roz Marks - Pg 120

1 1/4 cups almonds
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the almonds and sugar into a food processor with a metal blade. Process just until the mixture is smooth (don't over process).

Add 1 egg white and pulse 10 times.

Add the vanilla and pulse 2 to 3 times.

You should be able to shape the batter with your hands; it should be sticky and thick.

Lay a piece of baker's parchment on a baking sheet.

Shape the batter into balls the size of walnuts, and arrange them on the parchment.

Brush each macaroon with a little water.

Bake the macaroons for 16 minutes or until lightly browned.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven, cool the cookies completely on the parchment, and remove.

Store in a tightly covered container. They also free well.

Note: The size of the egg and the amount of oil in the almonds determine the consistency, so you might have to add a bit more ground almonds to make
it thicker or egg white if it's too dry to form into a ball.

Yield: About 12 Macaroons
