1 lb American Almond® Almond Paste
3 lb 8 oz Granulated suga
Grated orange zest from 2 oranges
1 Fresh egg yolks
For the coating
Egg whites as needed
Powdered sugar as needed
Combine the American Almond® Almond Paste, granulated sugar and grated orange zest on slow speed.
Gradually add the fresh egg yolks. Scrape the bowl and mix until smooth on low speed.
Roll into ½-inch diameter ropes and cut them into 1-inch pieces.
Moisten hands with the egg whites and roll each piece to form a ball.
Lightly toss the balls of dough into powdered sugar to coat and place them 1½ inches apart on parchment-lined sheet pans. Let stand two to three hours until the dough forms a crust.
Using your thumb and first two fingers, slightly pinch each piece of dough to form a rough triangle.
Bake at 380°F to 400°F until light golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.
