6 Ingredients Chewy Italian Almond Cookies (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for a fast and easy dessert, this is the yummiest cookie recipe you will ever try.

Disclaimer: These will be your new obsession. They are beyond simple to throw together and the outcome is like none other. So chewy on the inside with lots of almond flavor.

If you don’t have caster sugar, simply use any granulated sugar and run it through the mini food processor. Caster Sugar is a cross between regular granulated sugar and powdered sugar in consistency and texture. You can also just use regular granulated sugar – the recipe will still work just great!

The only issue you will have with these cookies is that you will not be able to just have one. They are tiny little cookies, so I just went for the second and third. They are perfect to impress for a party – I really hope you try them!

  • cups almond flour
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar *
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

US Customary – Metric


  • Preheat your oven to 350F. Line a cookies sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the powdered sugar to a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine your almond flour, egg whites, sugar, vanilla and almond extracts until a cookie dough forms – you may need to use your hands.
  • Scoop out about 1 ½ tbs of dough and roll it into a ball. Dredge the ball in your powdered sugar bowl and then transfer to the cookies sheet. Use your fingers to flatten out the cookie slightly. Bake for 11-13 minutes. These do not spread. Do NOT over bake!


If you don’t have caster sugar, you can make your own by running regular sugar through your mini food processor to make the texture finer. You can also skip the step and just use straight up granulated sugar. The recipe will still be delicious!
