Almond Cloud Cookies

From here: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/ ... ies-recipe

10 oz. almond paste
1 c sugar
2 lg egg whites
1/4 t almond extract
1/8 t bitter almond oil
confectioners' sugar

Bake tablespoons at 325 F for 20 minutes.

These are wonderful; crisp outer shell and a chewy center with intense almond flavor.
