Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 1/4 Cup(s) Blanched and lightly toasted
3/4 Cup(s) Powdered sugar
2 Teaspoon(s) All-Purpose Flour
2 Egg whites
1/3 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
1 Teaspoon(s) Grated lemon zest
1 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract
In a food processor, grind the almonds to a powder by pulsing off and
on to keep the powder loose. Mix the almonds with the powdered sugar
and flour. In a separate a bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks.
Gradually beat in the granulated sugar until stiff. Fold in the lemon
zest and almond extract. Pipe the mixture with a pastry bag using a
round 1/4-inch tip into 1 1/2-inch rounds onto baking sheets lined
with lightly buttered waxed paper or parchment. Bake in a preheated
275-degree oven for 1 hour, checking to make sure the amaretti don't
brown. Turn off the oven and let the amaretti dry out for an
additional hour--they should be very crisp. Store them in an airtight
container in the refrigerator or freezer. Yield: Approximately 24
