Forgotten Cookies: (Dairy & Gluten Free Cookies)
Gluten free cookies have always had a bad rap at our house but Forgotten Cookies are the exception! We love these delightful, crunchy almond meringue inspired cookies! They are simple to make and don't require any special ingredients!
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
- 2 egg whites
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 2 cups sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Make sure that the sheet is well coated.
Pulse the sliced almonds in the bowl of a food processor to chop them to small pieces. Don’t puree them into powder; just pulse several times until they are chopped small.
In the bowl of a stand mixer beat egg whites on high until stiff peaks form.
While mixer is running on high slowly pour in sugar, salt and then almond extract.
Turn the mixer off and fold in the almonds with a rubber spatula.
Drop the batter unto the cookie sheet by teaspoons. I like to drop a teaspoon of dough and then on top of that drop another half or so. This makes nice domed cookies.
TURN THE OVEN OFF!!!
Place the sheet of cookies in the hot oven and leave them at least two hours and up to overnight.
Carefully remove the cookies from the sheet and store in a single layer in an airtight container. Please note that the cookies are fragile and should be handled gently.
