2 cups almonds (raw with skins) soaked overnight/12 hours and ground finely in
cuisinart or Bob's Red Mill Finely Ground Almond Meal
2 cups potato starch (I use Ener-G brand potato starch which they sell at East Side Health Food Store)
1 tsp xanthum gum (my orginal recipe called for 3)
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar or agave
1/4 c. Spectrum Organic vegetable shortening melted in 1/2 cup water +1/2 c. additional water
3 egg whites
Finely grind almonds in cuisinart
Add other dry ingredients and process in cuisinart until well blended.
Then put flour mixture into mixing bowl.
Add vegetable shortening melted in 1 cup warm water.
Then add 3 egg whites
Mix on high until light and fluffy.
Scoop 1/4 cup size pieces of dough and roll into balls.
Drop ball into potato starch and flatten a little.
Flatten dough in hands making sure to have enough potato starch tokeep it from getting sticky.
Place on baking sheet covered with parchment parer and gently press asflat as you can.
Bake in 400 degree oven for about 18 minutes until they are goldenbrown.
