       Title: Macaroon Jam Slices
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 25 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Ground walnuts
     2/3 c  Sugar
       1    Egg white; slightly beaten
       1    Egg white; slightly beaten
      12 oz Apricot jam
            (or raspberry jam
  
       Preheat oven to 350.  With a pastry brush or paper towel, lightly
   butter a 14-by-17-inch baking sheet. Sprinkle some flour over it, tip the
   sheet from side to side to cover the surface evenly, then knock off the
   excess by inverting the sheet and striking it against the edge of a table.
       In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground walnuts and sugar. Add half
   slightly beaten white of 1 egg white, and stir until the mixture forma a
   paste thick enough to be kneaded with the hand. Add a little of the 2nd egg
   white if the mixture seems too dry. Shape the paste into roll about
   3/4-inch in diameter and 10-inches long.  With the index finger make a
   channel about 1/2-inch at each end of the roll. Lift the rolls with a large
   metal spatula, and place them, several inches apart, on the baking sheet.
        Bake them in the middle of the oven for 15 or 20 minutes, or until
   they are lightly browned. Meanwhile, heat the jam in a saucepan until it
   runs easily off the spoon. Remove the rolls from the oven and fill the
   channels with the hot jam. Let them cool. To serve, cut the rolls into
   slices 3/4-inch thick.
