Gluten Free Almond Macaroons

Make these delicious, flourless, almond macaroons. They are gluten free and only take about 20 minutes to throw together. Then 20 minutes to bake and voila!

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325ĀŗF. Line cookieĀ sheets with slicone baking mats or parchment paper; and set aside.
  2. Place almond pieces and sugar, (and flour, if using) in your food processor or mixer; and beat until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add egg white and beat until moist, about 2 minutes.
  4. Scoop theĀ almond mixture into a pastry bag or cookie press, fitted with a star tip. Pipe out 1 1/2-inch stars onto the prepared baking sheets, spaced about 1 inch apart. Alternatively, scoop out heapingĀ tablespoonsful of dough by hand.
  5. If using, pressĀ maraschino cherry halves into the center of each piped piece of dough.
  6. Bake 20 minutes on the centerĀ shelf of your oven. Then move to a higher shelf to brown the tips, about 4-inches from the heating element. Bake for an additional 8 minutes or until the tips are light golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool in pans for about 3 minutes. Then transfer the cookies to wire racks to completely cool. Serve immediately and store leftovers in an airtight container.

Tips

You can make them lighter by using 2 egg whites, but you'll need to bake them at a lower temperature. I suggest 275ĀŗF. Then allow them to dry out in the turned off oven with the door open until dry and set.
