Date Macaroons


  • 1 package (8 oz.) Sun-Maid Chopped Dates
  • 8 ounces slivered almonds
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Directions

    PREHEAT oven to 350ºF. Grease or line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    PLACE dates and almonds in a food processor. Pulse about 10 times until dates and nuts are finely chopped.
    BEAT egg whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer until foamy, about 1 minute. Gradually add sugar and beat on high speed until very thick and soft peaks form, about 4 minutes.
    FOLD dates and almonds into egg whites. Drop 2 tablespoon size mounds 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
    BAKE until golden brown and set, 20-25 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes on baking sheet; remove with a metal spatula and cool on a wire rack. Cookies will be crisp then soften upon storage. Store in an airtight container.

    Makes about 4 dozen.
