Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. First work together almond paste and sugar on a smooth board or marble slab.
  2. Then add whites of eggs gradually, and work until mixture is perfectly smooth.
  3. Confectioners at first use the hand, afterwards a palette knife, which is not only of use for mixing but for keeping board clean.
  4. Shape, using a pastry bag and tube, on a tin sheet covered with buttered paper, one-half inch apart; or drop mixture from tip of spoon in small piles.
  5. Macaroon mixture is stiff enough to hold its shape, but in baking spreads.
  6. Bake fifteen to twenty minutes in a slow oven.
  7. If liked soft, they should be slightly baked.
  8. After removing from oven, invert paper, and wet with a cloth wrung out of cold water, when macaroons will easily slip off.
