Almond-Apricot Macaroons

Cooking Light MARCH 2002

  • Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 macaroon)

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons matzo cake meal
  • 3/4 cup whole blanched almonds
  • 3/4 cup matzo cake meal
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 large egg whites

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons matzo cake meal.

Place the almonds in a food processor; pulse 3 to 4 times or until coarsely chopped.

Lightly spoon 3/4 cup matzo cake meal into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Add 3/4 cup matzo cake meal, sugar, and remaining ingredients to almonds; pulse 3 to 4 times or just until combined. (Mixture will be sticky.)

Using hands dusted with matzo cake meal, divide dough into 16 portions. Roll each portion into a ball; pinch tops to form a pear shape. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
