Simple Pistachio Macaroons

I am currently searching for a biscuit recipe to replicate something I tasted awhile ago. I can still remember its soft sweet gooey texture and polenta bite. They were so good as an after dinner treat accompanied by a nice little espresso to cut through the sweetness. The only problem is I have no idea how they were made.

For my first test on trying to replicate these biscuits I chose a simple macaroon recipe - 1 cup ground nuts, 1/4 cup icing sugar and 1 egg white. But as you can see below couldn't help myself but throw in everything I had in the cupboard. Note to self - learn to follow the recipe.

The result was more cakey than I was looking for but delicious non the less. They were perfect with my afternoon latte.

Simple Pistachio Macaroons

3/4 cup Ground Pistachios
2 tbsp Almond Meal
2 tbsp Polenta
1/4 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp Self Raising Flour
2 Egg Whites

Combine all ingredients and and rest in the fridge for 1/2 hour. With wet hands role into small balls and bake for 10min in a moderate oven. When cool role in icing sugar and serve.

When you say 'polenta', do you mean corn meal? Or, prepared polenta?
