Baking Equipment needed:
3 egg whites
125 g raw sugar (5/8 cup)
300 g fine ground almond (3 cups
pinch of sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
zest from one small lemon
Prep Time: 10 Min.
Bake Time: ~ 15 Min.
Makes 12 - 14 cookies
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until all ingredients are evenly distributed. It should be a wet dough (see consistency in video). O These cookies taste the best when you use freshly ground almonds. If the dough is too dry add more egg yolk and if it is too wet add more almond flour.
Using a tablespoon plop the cookie dough onto a buttered cookie sheet or better yet, baking paper, and bake until golden brown.
