I introduced this calendar already in March, the 1952 edition in that case. Since the recipe for today was "roast saddle of venison" (on an ordinary Monday (back then, not today)??), I decided to check the 1958 edition instead.
Pineapple macaroons - now how does that sound?
The ingredients are:
3 egg whites
0.8 lb grated almonds
3 canned pineapple slices, cut up very small
0.5 lb sugar
1 tablespoon of pineapple juice
0.1 lb crystallized pineapple chunks
For the icing: 4 tablespoons of pineapple juice, 0.5 lb powdered sugar
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the almonds and the pineapple pieces, then the sugar and pineapple juice. Make macaroons from the dough and put on a baking tray powdered with flour to dry. After a few hours put the tray in your gas oven (after all this is what the calendar is about) and bake for 20 minutes on 2 (180° C or 356° F). Afterwards glaze the macaroons and decorate with the crystallized pineapple.
Ok, who's going to make these for me?
