My mother has been making these cookies for year - long before any of us even heard of gluten-free! They really are good. She doesn't put in nuts, but will sometimes put in chocolate chips.

Variations:

Use amounts listed for 1 batch of cookies. To make 2 variations at a time, divide meringue mixture equally between 2 bowls. Beat or fold 1/2 the ingredient amounts listed for a variation into 1 of the bowls and 1/2 the ingredient amounts listed for a second variation into the second bowl. For all variations, omit ground almonds.

Brandy Alexander Beat in 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon brandy extract.

Cherry/Almond Fold in 1 cup chopped, drained maraschino cherries and 1 cup chopped almonds.

Chocolate Beat in 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Citrus Beat in 2 tablespoons grated orange peel, 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract and a few drops yellow food coloring.

Mint/Chocolate Chip Beat in 1/2 teaspoon mint extract and a few drops green food coloring. Fold in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Rocky Road Beat in 2 teaspoons vanilla. Fold in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels and 1 cup chopped nuts.

Thanks Ev I whole heartedly agree, they are so good. Im still changing it around but adding info from the years that I collected. We made ours with chocolate too but I figured its also good without it for those who are dairy free.

Almond macaroons, amaretti in Italian.

Those are also very good substituting pistachios or pecans for the almonds - grind in the blender with some of the sugar until quite fine. Traditional recipes may call for granulated sugar and a bit of flour, for which I would sub rice flour.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
