A traditional Greek version of the macaroon. This Greek almond cookies recipe (ergolavi) takes 5 minutes to prepare, 3 ingredients and is ready in 30 minutes!
- 250g sugar (8.8 ounces)
- 250g whole almonds, blanched or almond slivers (8.8 ounces), plus some extra for garnish
- 3 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- To prepare these super easy Greek almond biscuits, add the raw almonds and sugar in a food processor and blend until powdered. Add the egg whites (and the vanilla extract) and pulse, until the ingredients combine, forming a firm paste.
- Layer the bottom of 2 baking trays with parchment paper and form the cookies. Take approx. 1 1/2 tsp of the paste and place on the baking tray; repeat with the rest. Garnish with whole almonds or almond silvers and wait for a while for the dough to spread on the tray. If you like, shape the cookies using a pastry bag.
- Bake in preheated oven at 160C for 17-20 minutes, until light golden. Be careful not to over bake them. Enjoy hot from the oven with a full-spoon of your favorite jam!
