I don't know if anyone was watching Sarah's Secrets today but I saw this recipe and it seemed like it would be ok. Leaving off the whole almonds would make it even safer and I don't think it will make a difference to the cookie. They sounded good.
1 cup whole almonds (preferably blanched), plus 16 whole raw almonds 2/3 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg white 1/4 teaspoon almond extract Pinch salt Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly butter a baking sheet. In a food processor pulse 1 cup almonds with granulated sugar until ground fine. Add egg white, almond extract, and a pinch salt and pulse until combined. Roll mixture into 16 balls, about 1- inch in diameter, and arrange about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Slightly flatten balls and dust lightly with confectioners' sugar. Gently press 1 almond into each cookie.
Bake macaroons in middle of oven 10 minutes, or until pale golden. Transfer macaroons to a rack and cool completely. Macaroons keep 4 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
