  • ¼ tsp Mace
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • Sugar (for rolling out)
  1. Beat the egg whites until stiff

  4. Add the Lemon Juice
  5. Add the spice to the almond and stir
  6. Add the almond and spice to the egg whites and beat until they come together
  7. Let it stand for about 1 hour. (It will dry out and be firm) Do not cover
