|Skeleton Bone Cookies
4 egg whites
1 tsp grated orange peel
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups chopped salted almonds
With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg whites and sugar with orange peel and
baking powder until blended. Gradually add nuts and flour, beating until mixture is
thoroughly blended. Cover and chill until firm enough to handle, at least an hour or up to
a day. Lightly flour your hands and pinch off a three-tablespoon size piece of dough.
On a lightly floured board, use the palms of both hands to evenly roll out an 8-inch long
rope. Cut rope in half; roll each half out again to 8 inches. Fold an inch of each end
back onto rope and pinch ends to
make bone shapes. Repeat to shape all the dough. Place bones an inch apart on a
buttered and flour-dusted baking sheets. Bake in a 325 F oven until cookies are lightly
browned on bottoms (about 20 minutes).
