Almond Cookie Cups

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 1995

  • Yield: 1 dozen (serving size: 1 cookie cup)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Preparation

Place parchment paper over a large baking sheet. Draw 3 (5 1/2-inch) circles on parchment paper. Turn parchment paper over, and secure with masking tape.

Combine sugar and margarine in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until light and fluffy. Add almond extract and egg whites; beat well. Add flour and almonds; beat at low speed until well-blended.

Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon batter into the center of each of the 3 drawn circles; spread batter to outside edge of each circle. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes or until edges of cookies are browned. Let cool 30 seconds on pan.

Loosen edges of cookies with a spatula, and gently remove cookies from paper. Place each cookie over an inverted 6-ounce custard cup (or jar) coated with cooking spray. Shape the cookies around custard cups to form shallow cookie cups; let cool completely. (Cookies are delicate and should be handled carefully when shaped.) Repeat the procedure with remaining batter, reusing paper.
