Yield: 90 Servings
|1¾ cup||Powdered sugar|
|1 cup||Almond paste|
|11 tablespoons||All-purpose flour, divided|
|3 teaspoons||Rose water or water|
Combine powdered sugar, almond paste, ⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, rose water, and the egg white in a large bowl. Knead gently until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth (about 6 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 2 teaspoons at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Roll dough to ⅛-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using a petite cookie mold with 1-¼-inch-square imprints, press mold firmly into dough to imprint.
Remove the mold; cut the cookie squares apart, and place on baking sheets covered with parchment paper or unglazed brown paper (do not use recycled paper). Cover with a towel, and let stand at room temperature in a cool, dry place for 24 hours to dry.
Bake cookies at 275 degrees for 12 minutes. Let cool on wire racks. Yield: 7-½ dozen (serving size: 1 cookie).
