A question about a recipe: Meyer Lemon Macarons


I have a question about the ingredient "blanched almonds" on the recipe "Meyer Lemon Macarons" from DolcettoConfections. My friend is allergic to nuts but I still want to make them for her. Is there a substitute that I can use?

I don't think so...almonds are intrinsic to macarons. Maybe try one of the sugar cookie recipes on the site and make them small and sandwich them with the meyer lemon curd?

Are the allergic to seeds? Maybe blanched pumpkin/sqush seeds, and then soaked in brandy would sub?
