Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Additional: 1 hr
- 3 egg whites
- 6 tablespoons superfine (castor) sugar
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 ⅓ cups confectioners’ sugar
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Whisk egg whites in a clean metal mixing bowl until thick, about 5 minutes. Whisk superfine sugar into egg whites until thick, glossy, and stiff peaks form, 5 to 8 more minutes.
Sift almond meal and confectioners’ sugar over beaten egg whites; gently fold in, retaining as much air as possible.
Divide meringue into separate bowls to flavor and color, if desired.
Spoon meringue into a piping bag fitted with a 3/8-inch tip. Pipe 1-inch disks of meringue onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between cookies.
Let cookies stand at room temperature to form a thin skin, about 15 minutes.
Lift the baking sheets; let drop from several inches above the work surface to adhere cookies to the baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are dry, about 15 minutes; let cool completely on the baking sheets before peeling off the parchment paper, about 45 minutes.
