|Canned almond paste||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Granulated sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Powdered sugar||1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
Work almond paste with a spoon until softened.
Then add granulated sugar and unbeaten egg whites, a small amount at a time, while continuing to beat with a spoon.
When thoroughly blended, add powdered sugar, sifted with flour.
Shape, using a pastry bag with tube or by dropping from a tablespoon on cookie sheets which have been covered with plain or parchment paper.
Let stand covered, with a damp cloth for 5 min.
Remove cloth and bake in a slow oven of 300°F for 30 min.
Remove the macaroons from paper with a spatula.
If desired, finely chopped candied cherries may be added to the almond mixture before baking, or the tops of the macaroons may be decorated with chopped almonds, walnuts, raisins, or candied cherries.
