Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 20
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¼ cups sliced almonds
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  3. Whisk the sugar and egg together in a bowl for a minute or so, until well blended and just a bit thick.
  4. Add the almonds and whisk until evenly coated with the mixture. You need to use the batter right away — it separates as it stands. Give it a really good stir as your spooning it out.
  5. Scoop the batter (2 teaspoons each) onto the baking sheets, leaving at least 2 inches of space in between; flatten each mound with the back of a fork.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the pans midway through baking.
  7. The cookies should be toasted-almond beige, and dry and crackled on top.
  8. Transfer the baking sheets to racks and let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies from baking sheets. Enjoy!
