Q: I would love to have the recipe for the lighter-than-air almond cookies served after dinner at Nikolai's Roof.
- Linda Steel, Suwanee

A: These cookies are a fixture on Nikolai's Roof's dessert menu and are a snap to re-create at home. Almond paste can be found in a tube or a can in the baking section of grocery stores. These cookies can also be dropped by teaspoon, but using a piping bag speeds the prep and guarantees perfect circles. Try them out for the holidays.

Hands on time: 10 minutes  Total time: 22 minutes  Serves: 50

Ingredients:

    8 ounces almond paste
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups 10X confectioners' sugar
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    2 egg whites

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix almond paste, both sugars, flour and egg whites until well-blended and smooth. Pipe one-inch rounds onto a paper-lined pan using a plain piping tip fitted in a pastry bag. With damp fingertips, press down any peaks. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on pans before removing from paper.
