  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 3/4 Cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 ℉. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder and almond extract until smooth.

Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Let them cool completely and store in an airtight container.
