1. In a bowl sift almond flour through a fine sieve. Repeat this with powdered sugar. Whisk them well till combined. Set aside.
2. In a mixer add the egg whites and on low speed beat them for around 3 minutes or till frothy. Add sugar and continue to beat on medium speed till it forms stiff peaks. Put the red food coloring and continue to beat till well combined and evenly colored.
3. Put 1/3rd of the egg white mixture into the flour mixture and fold in till just combined. Add the remaining egg white mixture and fold it in with gentle strokes (around 50 only) till evenly combined. Do not over or under mix.
4. Fill this into a piping bag with round nozzle and pipe them onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Tap them to remove air bubbles. Let them sit for around 20 minutes or till they turn shell like without sticking.
5. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
6. Bake them in the oven for around 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool for around 10 minutes.
