Lemon Almond Crescents

Add a tablespoon of Gourmet Garden Ginger Stir-in Paste to this recipe for a bit of holiday taste.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Chill time: at least 2 hours
Cook time: 20 minutes

1 (10-oz.) Mariani Slivered Almonds
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup Mariani Sliced Almonds
Powdered sugar (optional)
Place almonds in a food processor and grind until they’re very fine and flour like in consistency. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large bowl. Stir in ground almonds, sugar, extracts and salt; cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to chill. Preheat oven to 300°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Press almonds with your fingers to break into smaller pieces. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch crescents, then roll in almonds; place on baking sheets. Bake for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch. Let cool completely, then dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Makes about 40 small cookies.
