Almond Macaroon Hearts

— Chef's Note —

"Pefko, like so many professional soldiers, turned out to have an almond macaroon for a heart." - Rudy Waltz (Deadeye Dick)

I tend to have an almond macaroon for a heart when it comes to Kurt Vonnegut's writing. Here's a recipe from the man himself, as featured in Deadeye Dick.

How to Make Almond Macaroons

— Ingredients —

confectioners
1 cup confectioners' sugar
almond paste
1 cup almond paste
egg whites
3 egg whites
salt
1 dash salt
vanilla
1/2 tsp vanilla
granulated sugar
granulated sugar

— Instructions —

  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients but granulated sugar.
  3. Line baking sheets with unglazed paper, and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Use a pastry tube (or cut a hole in the corner of a food storage bag) to pipe the mixture onto the paper into uniform gobs.
  5. Sprinkle each with sugar.
  6. Bake until golden (about 20 minutes), and let cool. Placing the sheet of macaroons on a damp cloth, paper side down, will make it easier to loosen the cookies from the paper.
