Almond Bites: GF-DF (serves 12)

These cookies are not only super easy to make – they taste great too!

Preheat the oven to 400 F/200 C

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup (3/4 dl) sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup (3 dl) almond flour
  • 1 T Amaretto or almond extract
  • powder sugar for dusting (optional)

Beat the egg white and sugar until stiff. Fold in the almond flour and Amaretto/almond extract with a couple of swift strokes. (Don’t over work the batter). Roll out the dough and cut it into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a small ball and put on a parchment covered baking tray. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 8 minutes. The inside should be a little chewy. Let them cool and dust them with a little powder sugar before serving. Freezes well and doesn’t need any thawing time.
