family favorite: almond macaroons

These cookies are near and dear to my family as they have been a favorite for quite some time.
They’re chewy, sweet and just delicious!

Every year, my aunt would make some and my cousins and I would be fighting over them (and still do, to this day!) They are so simple, so you should definitely try them out if you aren’t on a sugar diet!  This is a favorite go-to recipe if I need something quick.

1 cup of almond paste (if you get a big tub you can portion out a cup into ziplock baggies and put in freezer and then just defrost later).
1 cup of sugar
2 egg whites

In mixing bowl, break up paste. Mix with 1/2 cup sugar.  Add rest of sugar and egg whites and beat until smooth.  Drop cookies from teaspoon onto well greased cookie sheet.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 – 18 mins (or shorter or longer based on your oven).  Remove from sheet and place on cooling rack.

Enjoy!  I guarantee they won’t be around for long.
