Sicilian Macaron Cookie is an italian sicilian classic cookie recipe that is similar to a macroon crispy chewy and almondy cookie
8 ounces sliced almods
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 8-ounce can almond paste
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment. Place sliced almods in a shallow dish.
Combine granulated sugar, confectioners’ sugar, flour and salt in a medium bowl and lightly toss.
Place almond paste in a mixing bowl of an electric mixer and mix to break up. Add beaten egg whites and mix on low speed until smooth. Add almond extract and flour mixture and beat until flour is blended in, about 30 seconds. Do not over beat.
Using a teaspoon or a scooper, scoop up a rounded spoon of dough and push dough side into the sliced almods so that they stick to the dough. Ease dough out of scoop so that pine nuts are facing up on baking sheet. Place 2″ apart and re-apply any loose nuts.
Bake cookies for about 25 minutes. Use the shorter baking time if you like soft cookies; the longer baking time if you like them chewy. Cool 1 minute and remove to a rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
