Orange Almond Crisps
Cuisine: Southern, Italian
  • Vegetable oil for brushing
  • 2 egg whites
  • grated zest of one orange
  • ½ tsp. almond extract
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 2¾ cup sliced almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. Whisk sugar into egg whites until well combined.
  3. Grate orange into mixture and stir. Add almond extract.
  4. Stir in almonds.
  5. Brush vegetable oil on a cookie sheet.
  6. Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto the cookie sheet.
  7. Flatten just a little with the back of an oiled spoon so the cookies will toast evenly.
  8. Cook until lightly brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
You may add more orange rind than called for in the recipe. It's almost impossible to have too much.
You may also add a half teaspoon of orange flower water if you have it. It's a more delicate and nuanced form of orange than the rind.
