  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup flour sifted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


Set oven to 400F degrees.

  1. 1) Place egg whites in a bowl and beat with electric mixer on medium speed until very frothy, almost soft peaks.
  2. 2) Add sifted flour,
  3. 3) Add sugar, almond, and vanilla then mix.
  4. 4) Stir in 2 tablespoons of water to thin batter.
  5. 5) Using a Silpat baking mat, parchment paper or un-greased baking pan place 1 tablespoon of batter on the pan. (I liked the Silpat mat the best.  I did not have a problem removing them from my un-greased pan. When I greased the pan the batter did not stay in a circle. Since the moisture content in the batter is high, it does make the parchment paper wrinkle slightly but it still worked.)
