Almond Lemon Macaroons

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups unblanched almonds
  2. 1/2 cup Sucanat or sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon almond extract (find one that's kosher for Passover)
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
  6. 3 egg whites

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Grind the almonds in a food processor, and pour them into a mixing bowl.
  3. Mix in the Sucanat, almond extract, salt, and lemon rind. Then stir in the egg whites. The dough will be thick, like wet sand.
  4. Use a spoon to place two-inch balls on a pan lined with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until dry and lightly brown on top.
