It's important to weigh the nuts for accurate amounts, as volume can differ enormously. Extra cookies keep well, covered in plastic wrap and frozen.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cups sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon anise seeds, crushed
  • 3 large white eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar

DIRECTIONS

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.

In the bowl of a food processor, blend 3 ½ ounces almonds (about 1 cup) with 1 cup of sugar until almonds are finely ground. Transfer the almond mixture to a medium bowl. Stir in flour, orange zest, and crushed anise seeds.

Using an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites, salt, and remaining ¼ cup sugar to soft glossy peaks. Fold egg-white mixture into dry ingredients until just blended.

Spoon level tablespoons of batter 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using remaining ¾ ounce almonds, arrange 3 sliced almonds on each cookie. Sift confectioners' sugar over cookies. Bake until cookies are lightly browned along edges, about 12 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from sheets with a spatula.
