To prepare the almond paste, put the peeled almonds and sugar in a mixer equipped with steel blades, blending until they are reduced to powder:this step will take a few minutes to prevent the almonds from overheating and releasing their oil.
Add the egg whites and the almond aroma and blend again to mix everything..
The dough will be ready when it is compact but soft to the touch, then transfer it to a very resistant sac-à-poche with a 10 mm ribbed nozzle..
Line a dripping pan with parchment paper that you can fix better by squeezing a little dough at the four corners of the pan..
Form piles with a diameter of 3 cm and about 2 cm high and garnish part of them with the candied cherries cut in half and part with the whole almonds.
At this point, put the dripping pan in the refrigerator and let the almond pastes cool for at least 7 hours or even better overnight, covered with plastic wrap.a.
After this time, take the pan back, cook in a preheated convection oven at 180 for about 15 minutes, placing the pan on the medium shelf..
Be careful not to overcook them, otherwise they will not be soft enough inside: they must still be a little pale.i.
Once out of the oven, let it cool and serve your almond pastries!
