Yield: 45 Cookies
|1¼ pounds||Whole raw almonds (sweet almonds, if available)|
|5 cups||Confectioners' sugar|
|2 \N||Egg whites|
Blanch almonds and let dry overnight. Preheat oven to 325F. Grind the almonds very fine, sift sugar over the ground almonds, and add egg whites.
On a board lightly dusted with confectioners' sugar, knead dough to a stiff paste. Add more egg whites if necessary. Shape into a roll and, working with pieces the size of a walnut, roll each piece into a rope ½ inch thick. Form into rings, crescents, hearts, bow knots, and pretzels.
Bake on greased cookie sheets until slightly browned, about 15 minutes.
