• 2 egg whites
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 1 and 1/2 oz (3 Tbs) butter
• 1/3 cup flour
• 1/3 cup slivered almonds
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt butter in microwave or double boiler.
Mix the egg whites with the sugar (without making them rise).
• Add the flour and melted butter, mixing with an electric mixer to avoid lumps.
Place a piece of parchment on a cookie sheet and drop a teaspoon of dough onto it. Flatten the dough with the back of the spoon to make them round.
• Place the slivered almonds on each round cookie.
Cook for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. The edges of the cookie should be golden.
If you wish to give a domed shape to the cookie, place them onto a rolling pin or the side of a glass when you take them out of the oven.
