  • 130 g blanched almonds
  • 20 g bitter almonds
  • 200 g confectioner's sugar
  • 2-3 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • 1 - 2 tbsp. pistachio slivers
  • 1 - 2 tbsp. almond slivers
  • 1 - 2 tbsp. sugar



  1. Preheat oven to 180°.

  2. Grind blanched and bitter almonds in a grinder.

  3. Beat 2 egg whites, add ground almonds and powdered sugar. Continue beating for 10 - 15 minutes. If the mixture is too firm, add the third egg white, if it is too soft, add 1 -2 tablespoons of ground almonds. 

  4. Add baking powder and mix well. 

  5. Fill the mixture into an icing bag and place even dots on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave enough space so they do not stick together during baking, because they come apart a little.

  6. Sprinkle with almond-, pistachio sticks and sugar.

  7. Bake in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes. 

  8. Let cool down on a cake rack.


They taste best when prepared very fresh for up to 3 days. In an airtight container they will keep even up to 2 weeks. However, they become a little firmer in texture, which does not reduce the taste.
