Recipe directions

In a bowl, combine the margarine, sugar. Mix to obtain a creamy mixture. Add the egg whites, 1 egg yolk (keep the other one for later), cinnamon, cardamom, salt, baking powder, almond powder, flour and soymeal. Knead to obtain a solid dough. Allow to cool down for 1 hour.

Form flat cookies with diameter of about 5 - 6 cm on one or more greased baking plate. Mix the egg yolk and the soymilk. Brush this mixture on the almond cookies. Press one halve almond in each cookie.

Bake the almond cookies about 6-8 minutes in an oven at 200°C (400°F) until golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool down on wire racks.

Almond facts

The almond is available in different forms: raw or roasted, whole, sliced or powdered. There are two main almond types: the sweet almond is mainly used for direct consumption, the bitter almond has a too strong flavour and should not be eaten in big quantities. The bitter almond is responsible for the typical Amaretto taste. The almond offers many healthy nutrients. The almond contains, per 100g following nutrients: 21.2 g protein, 11.8 g fibre, 248 g calcium (that is twice as much than milk!), 4.3 mg iron, 728 mg potassium, 0.241 mg thiamine, 0.811 mg riboflavin and 25.9 mg vitamin E. The quantity of vitamin E in the almond is very high and in a form that can be readily absorbed by the body.
