Ingredients

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only)

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/4 cup sliced almonds, finely chopped

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Beat egg whites in bowl at medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, almond extract and salt until smooth. Gradually beat in flour until smooth. Continue beating, adding 1 tablespoon butter at a time, until batter is smooth and well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 20 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop batter by teaspoonfuls at least 3 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Spread batter, using spatula and working in a circular motion, into 1 1/2-inch circles; sprinkle immediately with almonds. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

  4. STEP 4

    Remove cookies from oven. Immediately press cookies over rolling pin or 12-ounce beverage can to form curved shape. Let cookies set until well formed and cooled slightly. Cool completely.
