Almond Macroons

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia 7 comments


1 cup fine powdered sugar
2 cups roasted and ground Almonds or Hazelnuts
3 eggs white
1 tsp. vanilla essence
1 ½ cup very lightly roasted slivered/flaked almonds
1 tsp. Butter for greasing fingers
2 tbsp. powdered sugar for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment or butter paper.
  2. In a glass bowl, combine ground almond powder,  essence, sugar and white of the eggs. Mix very well till sugar melts. It will remain a bit sticky.
  3. Spread the Almond slivers in a plate. Grease your finger tips with little ghee/butter. Take big scoop of batter and softly roll into a rough ball and roll them in the almond slivers, coating them evenly on all sides.
  4. Place all the balls on the baking sheet at a distance, and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. You may sprinkle little powdered sugar on top.
  5. These  melt in the mouth macaroons  will remain moist from inside and crisp on the outside.
  6. Cool and store.
