- Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet; set aside. Prepare Basic Dough. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in egg white, then in almonds. Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Press your thumb into the center of each ball.
- Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Press puffed centers down using the rounded side of a measuring tablespoon. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool. Just before serving, fill centers with about 1 teaspoon lemon, strawberry, or raspberry curd. Makes about 42.
