Almond Drops (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Evelyne Johnson
Serves: 20

1 egg white
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup sliced almonds
chocolate bits, for topping

Preheat the oven to 300°F.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Stir together the egg white and sugar (I don't even use a mixer) and then stir in the almonds.

Drop by teaspoon (they shouldn't be more than 2" in diameter) and top with a chocolate chip. Bake about 20 minutes until lightly browned.

When you remove from the oven mash down the chocolate bit (it makes it look like a dab of icing) and let it cool before removing from sheet.

Poster's Notes:
I use the same ingredients in the food processor and make balls out of the dough just over 1" in diameter. I flatten them slightly by pushing down drained maraschino cherry on top.

I usually do double the recipe. I make these all year because they're so simple to make, everybody loves them AND they are good for Pesach.
