Greek Almond Cookies


  1. Combine the almond meal, sugar and almond essence in a large bowl.
  2. Add the egg whites and stir until the mixture forms a firm paste. Do not overmix.
  3. Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into the flaked almonds, and then roll into an 8cm long roll.
  4. Repeat until all the mixture is used. Press the remaining almonds onto the rolls.
  5. Shape the rolls into crescents or other shapes, and place on baking paper-lined oven trays.
  6. Bake in a moderate oven (180c) for about 15 mins or until lightly browned. Cool on trays.
