Christmas in Spain is a vast festival that combines the religious
spirit of the Nativity with the delights of the table. In village
markets and urban areas throughout Spain, each holiday specialty
recipe is carefully prepared for holiday feasting and gift-giving.
Extraordinary dulces (sweets) including sugared-fruits, cream-filled
cakes and pastries oozing with jam, fill shops and tearooms
everywhere. Just in case you aren't making a trip to Spain for the
holidays, try preparing this almond-puff cookie tonight and you'll get
a taste of Spanish holiday baking courtesy of The Cook & Kitchen Staff
at Pre-heat over to 325-F degrees. Lightly toast the
almonds and set aside to cool when complete. Beat egg whites until
stiff, but not dry. Gradually add sugar, beating constantly. After the
confectioners sugar has been added, beat 5 to 8-minutes longer. Fold
in almonds and vanilla. Place by spoonfuls or shape into rings on a
greased cookie sheet. Bake for 17 to 20-minutes or until cookies just
begin to color. Removed from cookie sheet to cool. Serve or store in
an airtight container. Happy Cooking from The Cook & Kitchen Staff at Posted to by
