This four-ingredient cookie couldn't be simpler. The vanilla bean gives a lovely hit of flavour without using extract, which is usually not kosher for Passover. The scraped bean pod can be added to a canister of granulated sugar to perfume it for all of your baking.

Split vanilla bean; scrape seeds into food processor. Add almonds and sugar; pulse until fine. Add egg whites; pulse until in thick paste.

Using damp hands, roll by scant 1 tbsp into balls; place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack.
