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.

 
Ingredients:

 

*250 g granulated sugar

*250 g almonds, blanched + extra for decorating

*1 tsp almond extract

*3 egg whites

*pinch of salt

 

 

Directions:

 
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.

 

 

 

Tip
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!
