  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1      Recipe        Almond Paste (see recipe)
   2      Cups          sugar, powdered
     1/4  Teaspoon      Salt
   4      Tablespoons   Flour
   2                    Egg Whites -- (1 to 4 - approx.!)

1)  Soften paste with the back of a tablespoon and work in the dry ingredients.  Mix well.

2)  Begin adding egg whites, one at a time, blending well after each addition.  Use only enough egg white to make a soft dough that will HOLD ITS SHAPE when dropped from a spoon.

2)  Drop 2 inches apart on a brown-paper-covered baking sheet.  Pat tops lightly with fingers dipped in cold water.

3)  Bake at 150° C (300° F) for 18-20 minutes or until set and delicately browned.

4)  Remove from paper onto wire racks to cool.
