3 1/2 ounces slivered almonds (about 1 cup)
3/4 cup sugar

Zest of 2 oranges, finely grated

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade, blend almonds with 1/2 cup sugar until almonds are finely ground. Transfer almond mixture to a medium bowl. Sift in flour. Add orange zest and crushed anise seed; stir to combine.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup( 50gr) sugar to soft glossy peaks. Fold egg-white mixture into dry ingredients until just blended.
Spoon level tablespoons of batter 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Sift confectioners' sugar over cookies. Bake until cookies are lightly browned along edges, about 12 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from sheets with a spatula.
