Greek Almond Macaroons

  • Beat egg whites with salt until stiff, then add lemon juice. Add almonds, sugar and crumbs to egg whites, folding them in gradually. Add vanilla extract.
  • Cut a brown paper bag to fit a cookie sheet and grease the paper. Drop teaspoon−size macaroons onto paper and bake at 275 degrees F about 20 minutes, checking after 15 minutes so that Amigdalota don’t burn.
  • Brush cookies with rose water when they come out of the oven. Loosen them from paper by moistening the paper slightly and lifting off macaroons. Sift confectioners’ sugar over them and let cool.
