Gradually add the sugar and continue beating for 15 minutes after the last of the sugar has been added.
Remove half the mixture to a separate smaller bowl (to be used for icing).
Fold the ground almonds into the remaining mixture; blend well.
Roll the dough about 1/8 inch thick on a board sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.
Cut into 4 x 1/2-inch strips, using a thin sharp knife.
Arrange the strips close together on a greased cookie sheet (they will not spread).
Frost the tops with the reserved meringue mixture (a table knife works best here).
Let dry 5 minutes before baking.
Bake in a 300° oven until the tops are just beginning to turn tan, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the cookie sheet at once.
When cooled, store in a tightly covered container to keep crisp.
