For comparison purposes, here is the recipe I use from Anne Willan's Country Cooking of France.

 

1 cup (250 g) butter

3/4 cup (100 g) ground almonds

3/4 cup (100 g) flour

1 1/4 cup (300 g) powdered sugar

8 egg whites (1 cup/250 mL)

 

Sift flour and sugar into a saucepan, add ground almonds. Add whisked egg whites. Stir mixture over low heat until warm. Add melted butter. Fill buttered molds halfway.

425F oven 17-20 min, Cool 5 min then unmold.
