Orange Almond Cookies (Kosher For Passover)

I've seen this recipe made with pistachios all over the place for years and I thought that almonds would make an interesting version. I added grated orange peel for a little extra something and it gives the cookie a nice depth. Best of all these cookies are really easy to make.

3 cups blanched almond slivers
3/4 cup of Domino demerara sugar, light brown sugar or white sugar (if it's not Passover I would use sucanat since it's the healthiest option!)
3 egg whites
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line your cookie trays with parchment paper
2. Ground almonds in a food processor to a medium ground.
3. Empty the almonds in to a bowl and add the sugar and the grated orange peel.
4. Use your hands to combine. Make sure the grated orange peel is mixed in evenly.
5. Beat the egg whites, add them to the dry ingredients and mix well.
6. Take a rounded tablespoon of the mixture and then slide it off the spoon on to the cookie tray.
7. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
8. Wait a few minutes to remove the cookies from the cookies trays.

The orange almond cookies look nice. In the directions it says to beat the egg whites. Does that mean until stiff?

Wendy,

No they just need to be mixed.

I am glad I have found your site. I want to do some cooking and baking, tonight and this looks like a nice addition to our desserts for Passover.

I just realized, I don't have a Pesach zester. I will see what I can use.

Thanks for the recipe.

Comfy Cook,
