Yield: 5 Dozen
1 Large Egg White

1/2 Cup Confections Sugar, sifted, plus more for surface coating
1/8 Teaspoon Pure Almond Extract
1/2 Ounce (1 Tablespoon) Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored Liqueur
1 1/2 Teaspoons Finely Grated Orange Zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats. Beat 1 egg white, the almond paste, confections sugar, and almond extract with a mixer on medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add Grand Marnier and orange zest, and beat until combined, about 1 minute.
Roll dough into 1/2-1 inch balls. Coat with powdered sugar and place on prepared baking sheet 1 inch apart.
