Almond Meringue Cookies






Almond meringue cookies are a guilt-free treat! Low calorie and so easy to make. These crisp and chewy almond meringue cookies are made with just three ingredients. Get the recipe and bake again and again.



*250 g granulated sugar

*250 g almonds, blanched + extra for decorating

*1 tsp almond extract

*3 egg whites

*pinch of salt




Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F).

Beat the almonds, sugar and salt in a food processor, until they are finely ground. Transfer to a large bowl.

Beat the egg whites along with a pinch of salt and the almond extract, with the whisk attachment, until you create a nice, fluffy meringue.

Add the meringue, gradually, to the bowl with the ground almond mixture. Mix gently with a spatula, until thoroughly combined.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Add a heaping tablespoonful of the mixture at a time to the baking sheet, leaving enough space between them. They should be quite large. (About 6 cookies to each baking sheet.)

Place a whole almond in the center of each cookie. Press down on it lightly.

Bake for 20  minutes.

Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve.




Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for a while before putting them in the oven. This will help them take on a nicer shape!
