  • Yield: Makes 4 to 5 dozen
Almond Crisps

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December/January 1994/1995


  • 9 1/2 ounces unblanched almonds, finely ground (2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unblanched almond slices
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine ground almonds, sugar, and egg whites. Beat on medium speed until thick, about 3 minutes. Beat in extracts.

  2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball with dampened fingers, and gently press 2 sliced almonds on top.

  3. Bake until just brown on top, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and place on a wire rack for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheet while still warm, and place on a wire rack to cool.

    I make these cookies every Christmas and have for 15 years. Now my friends request them.

    I do wish I had nutritional information for them (specifically total carbohydrates.) My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year and I need to count carb/insulin.
