Light Almond Loves
1 3/4 cups blanched almonds
2 egg whites
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup fruit preserves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with nonstick spray.
In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, grind together all the
ingredients except the preserves, until a smooth paste forms.
Drop teaspoonfuls of the paste on the cookie sheets. With a wet spoon, make a depression in the centers of the cookies. Place a small dollop (about 1/2 teaspoon) of preserves in each depression.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly golden. Yield: 30 cookies (1 per serving).
