You'll only need a few ingredients to make this easy recipe, so let's round them up and get started!
Mix together granulated sugar, confectioner's sugar, flour, and salt in a bowl.
Put the almond paste in a bowl and mix it a little, then add egg whites and mix on low until smooth.
Then mix in the almond extract and the flour mixture, just until smoothly combined.
