Almond flour

I "discovered" almost an entire package of almond flour in the freezer. I bought it late last year in a full hardy attempt at making macaroons.

Any ideas how I can use it up?

That's why I bought it, but the macaroons...they didn't work out.

How about almond cookies. With the addition of one or two drops of almond extract, it's the same recipe as easily made sugar cookies, only you could use your almond flour in addition to the regular flour. Served two on a small plate with a paper doily, one offset on top of the other and sprinkled with powder sugar, they make a pleasing yet simple desert.

If you're looking for a specific recipe, look up "Mexican Wedding Cookies."

I could make more macaroons, but I don't bake a lot of sweets. I'm afraid the flour will go bad before I use it up.

Any non-sweet uses for almond flour?

It won't go bad in the freezer.
