Cake Desserts Low-fat/cal

Ingredients:

  • 1 c Blanched almonds
  • 1 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Rose water; (optional)
  • 3 Egg whites
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Directions:

Place almonds in food processor, and process until finely ground. Add sugar and flour; process until blended. Add rose water and egg whites; process until well-blended (the mixture will be very thick). With floured hands, shape the dough into 28 balls, and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
 
Bake at 325 degrees for 28 minutes or until crisp on the outside and soft on the inside; cool on racks.
 
Yield: 28 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie).
 
The original version of these cookies called for 2 cups of almonds. We replaced 1 cup with flour for a healthier, but still delicious, alternative.
