Ingredients

  • 12 oz of whole almonds
  • 6 oz of powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 small lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil for rolling
  • few whole almonds for decoration
Preparation
  • Grind the almonds in a grinder until you get an almond powder with a fine texture.
  • Grate the peel of the lemon to get the lemon zest.
  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.
  • Mix the egg yolks with the almond powder, powdered sugar, lemon zest, and the baking powder.
  • Beat the egg whites until you obtain a thick white foam.
  • Incorporate the egg whites in the egg yolks mixture. Use your hand to mix the dough to ensure that all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • To roll the macaroons, put some cooking oil in your hands so that the dough does not stick to them. Take a small amount of the dough and roll it in a ball, flatten it a bit, and place it in a baking pan with wax paper.
  • Preheat your oven at 350 F and bake the macaroons for 15 minutes.
Note: When still hot, the macaroons are very soft, their texture will change as they cool down.
