  • About


  • Rich Pie Dough
  • Jam or marmalade
  • White of 3 eggs
  • ½ lb. powdered sugar
  • ½ lb. grated almonds


Line a gem or muffin pan with Rich Pastry; half fill each tart with any desired preserve, and bake in a quick oven. Beat the whites of eggs to a stiff froth, add the powdered sugar and stir about 10 minutes or until very light and gradually add the grated almonds. Divide this macaroon paste into equal portions. Roll and shape into strips, dusting hands with powdered sugar in place of flour. Place these strips on the baked tarts in parallel rows to cross each other diagonally. Return to oven and bake in a slow oven about 15 minutes. Let remain in pans until almost cold.
