VANILLA ALMOND STRIPS
Desserts
Contributed by:
Ingredients:
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 lb. sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups ground almonds (not chopped) or almond flour. This is less than 1 lb. of almonds. Do not use the brown covering.
Beat egg whites until they stand in peaks but are not dry.
Gradually add sugar, salt and vanilla.
Divide the mixture in half and add ground nuts to half of the mixture.
Add enough of the almonds or almond flour to form a mixture that can be easily handled. Let it sit 15 to 20 minutes, which helps for easier handling.
Roll out 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured board and cut in finger-size shapes (3 inches by 1 inch)
Place close together on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. (They don’t spread.) Frost with the other half of the mixture.
Let stand to dry (about 5 minutes).
Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes until they just begin to turn tan.
Store in an airtight container.
