Amaretti Cookies

2 ½ cups almond Flour
1 ¼ cup of baker’s sugar
3 egg whites
½ tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
extra sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 300 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a food processor mill together the almond flour and sugar. Add the vanilla and almond extract and pulse for a few seconds. Add the eggs, one at a time, and continue to process until the dough is smooth.

Place teaspoons of the dough on the parchment paper and dust with sugar. Bake for 24-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving. They will be slightly chewy at first, but they will be nicely crispy as a day or two goes by. Store in a cool, dry place. (Note: I usually underbake mine since I like them chewy. If that's your preference, bake them for about 20-24 minutes.) Makes about 30 cookies.
