Pasta Reale


For 2 Dozen(s)

For the Cookies:

  • 1 pound almonds
  • 1/2 pound sugar
  • 2 lemons
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar for glazing (put it in a flat plate for rolling)
  • silver mini dragees


  1. To prepare the paste, boil the almonds and remove the peel. Once they are cold and somewhat dry, put them in a food processor or a blender and chop them finely.
  2. Put the chopped almonds in a bowl, add the zest of the two lemons, the sugar and egg whites. Mix until the egg whites dilute the sugar and the mixture becomes a paste.
  3. Take a lump of mixture in your hand, roll it into a ball the size slightly smaller than a golf ball.
  4. Roll the ball completely into the sugar and place it on a baking sheet.
  5. Slightly insert a silver ball on top of each ball/cookie.
  6. Bake for 30 mins. at 375F.
