The ingredients are few and pretty simple. You will need 250g of ground almonds, 80 g of icing sugar ( equivalent to ½ cup + 1 tbsp), the zest of 2 oranges, and 2 egg whites.

First, mix the ground almonds and icing sugar until they’re well blended. Add the orange zest and mix everything together with a rubber spatula or rubber spoon.

Add the egg whites and mix with your spoon until it becomes pasty. When that happens, drop the spoon and mix it with your hands until it becomes doughy.

On a small plate, add icing sugar to dip the cookie.

Use a small spoon to scoop up a small amount of dough. Use your palm to form it into a ball and use your fingers to flatten it.

Dip the cookie in the icing sugar and make sure all sides are covered.

Do this for the rest of the dough.

Once all of the cookies are covered with icing sugar, bake them at 180°C (350°F) for 12 mins. Let it cool once it’s done baking.

Is this your first time baking flourless or gluten-free cookies? Here are a few tips to remember to ensure the success of your gluten-free baking journey.

Always use a basic kitchen timer. Baking with gluten-free or flourless products needs to be precise with the baking time. You do not want your pastries to be underbaked or overbaked.

It’s best to use a wire whisk to mix all the dry ingredients.

Always let your flourless or gluten-free goods rest after baking to keep the structure. Place the baked products on a wire rack and let them cool completely.

Scoop out a smaller amount of dough when making cookies so they’ll stay together. When the dough is smaller, there’s a bigger chance the dough will keep together and not crumble.

And use nonstick baking mats or parchment paper so the cookies are easier to remove after baking.
