4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 ounce almond extract -- (small bottle)
3 tablespoons cocoa
6 cups ground almonds -- (up to 8-cups)

Preparation / Directions:

Beat til light and fluffy 4 extra large eggs. Add 2 cups granulated sugar and continue beating tile the eggs are almost white and very light. Than add, 1 small bottle almond extract, 3 tbsp cocoa and 6 - 8 cups of ground almonds (as many as it takes to make the batter the right consistency for a drop cookie). Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Bake at 350 F. 8 to 10 minutes, until done but still slightly soft. While still warm, roll them in a light mixture of icing sugar and water, it should be about as runny as heavy cream. Voila! If you prefer a more evenly shaped cookie, make your batter a little stiffer and roll it into balls to place on cookie sheet.
