When thoroughly blended, add powdered sugar, sifted with flour.

Remove cloth and bake in a slow oven of 300°F for 30 min.
Remove the macaroons from paper with a spatula.
If desired, finely chopped candied cherries may be added to the almond mixture before baking, or the tops of the macaroons may be decorated with chopped almonds, walnuts, raisins, or candied cherries.
