Nonna Says… the best Health Insurance is to eat healthy foods! That’s why we make Almond Ravioli… delicate cookies filled with Almond Paste!

1  1/2 Lb Almond paste, 3 Egg whites, 1 1/2 Cups Powdered sugar, 1/2 Cup Granulated sugar, 1/4 Cup Mini chocolate chips
1 Lb Flour “00”, 1/2 Lb Crisco or Lard, 1 Cup Sugar, 1 Bag – Vanillina Pane Degli Angeli or 1 Tsp Vanilla extract, Zest of 1 lemon, 3 Eggs, 1 Tbs Baking powder, Milk as needed  – about 1/4 cup
Mix the almond paste, the egg whites and the sugars together.
At the end fold in the chocolate chips.
In a bowl, mix all the dough ingredients and add as much milk as necessary to make the dough soft and elastic. Cover it and let it rest for 30 mins.
Take a small ball of dough the size of a golf ball and roll it in your hand.  With your finger, press and indentation into the dough and fill it with the filling. Close cover the filling with the dough on the sides of the ball and roll it again in your hands. Place it on a baking sheet and with the palm of your hand press it down.
Make all your cookies and  bake them at 375F for about 10 Min. Garnish with powdered sugar.
