Orange-Almond Pillows

1 1/2 cups blanched whole almonds (ground)
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 egg white
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Orange Glaze (recipe below)

Orange Glaze Ingredients:

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
3-4 teaspoons orange juice

Heat oven to 350º. Grease and flour cookie sheet, or cover with cooking parchment paper. Mix ground almonds and orange peel; set aside. Beat egg white in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff but not dry. Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Beat on high speed about 3 minutes or until slightly stiff. Fold almond mixture into egg white mixture (mixture will be stiff). Roll dough into rectangle, 9×6 inches, on cloth-covered surface generously dusted with powdered sugar. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares. Place 1″ apart on cookie sheet. Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until set and very light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle with Orange Glaze.

Orange Glaze Directions:

Mix all ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle.
