No Reservations Required by Ellen Hart
If you have a desire to read a very entertaining mystery, this is a book to try. Great plot with twists and turns, interesting characters and one you just don't want to end.
This book is part of her Sophie Greenway series and they are very entertaining books.
List of Ingredients
2 c almond paste
1 c sugar
2 egg whites, beaten slightly
Preheat to 325.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Break up the almond paste so it is small chunks.
Combine almond paste chunks, sugar and egg whites (if the batter is too thick, use more egg whites).
Beat until mixture is well combined, using electric mixer.
Fill a pastry bag with a large tip and squeeze out cookies onto the parchment paper; cookies should be about 1 inch wide by 4 inches long.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the surface is golden brown.
These are fragile, so handle hot cookies with care.
Cool, serve plain or if desired, frost with melted chocolate or a powdered sugar icing.
