Almond crisps

These toasty, light cookies are simple, quick, and gluten-free, making them a perfect choice for guests with dietary restrictions other than nut allergies — and they can even be made to fit a keto diet. (Just replace the powdered sugar with an equal amount of sugar substitute, ground in a spice mill or coffee grinder until it’s powdery.)

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 8 ounces almond slices about 2½ cups


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 half-sheet pans with parchment.
  • In a large bowl, beat egg whites. Whisk in powdered sugar until smooth. Add salt, vanilla and almond extracts and whisk to combine.
  • Add almond slices and stir until all the almonds are well-coated.
  • To form the crisps, place heaping tablespoons of the mixture on the lined pans. Using a fork, spread out each mound into a disc about two inches in diameter. Crisps can be close together but should not touch.
  • Bake for 13–15 minutes, switching the pans in the oven halfway through. The crisps should be tan all over. Remove the pans from the oven and let rest for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. When cooled completely, they should be crispy.
