Passover and Purim specialty.
- 2 Cups Ground almonds
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 2-3 Drops Almond or vanilla extract
- 1 Egg white
Mix ground almonds with sugar and extract.
Add egg white and work mixture very well with hands, kneading vigorously until almonds exude their oil and hold together in a stiff paste.
Take lumps the size of small walnuts, shape into round flat circles, and place on wax paper on baking sheet.
Bake very briefly in preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for 8-10 minutes, until slightly colored. They will be very soft but will harden as they cool.
Leave firm before detaching from baking sheet.
