Chocolate Amazons (Schokoladen Amazonen)
Finely ground, unblanched
Bar or square semisweet
Blanched Almonds, split in
Half (for garnish)
Beat egg whites until very stiff. Fold in sugar. Combine. Add
ground almonds and grated chocolate and blend gently but thoroughly.
Drop a teaspoon of mixture onto a well-buttered 10 x 16 x 2 inch
baking pan, forming a small mound with the help of a second spoon. It
is essential to keep mound high. Decorate by placing one blanched
almond half on top of each dome.
Place in preheated oven, 300 degrees, reduce to 250 degrees, and bake
for about 25 minutes until firm on surface. Leave on baking pan
until slightly cool. Remove. Cookies may be slightly soft, but they
will harden during cooling time. 18 to 20 cookies.
