In a bowl combine 3 cups ground blanched almonds and 1 1/2 cups each of dry bread crumbs and sugar. Fold in 3 egg whites, beaten until they hold stiff peaks, and 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract. Form tablespoons of the mixture into balls and put the balls on buttered baking sheets. In a small bowl beat 3 egg yolks with 1 whole egg. Make an indentation in each ball and fill the hollows with beaten egg. Cap each egg-filled ball with a lightly toasted blanched almond and bake the cookies in a preheated moderate oven (350° F.) for 15 minutes, or until they are golden. Makes about 48 cookies.
