The recipe calls for 2/3 cup sliced almonds, which you then put in food processor. How much almond flour would that be?

I have a cookie cookbook and there is a recipe for macrons in it. I have made they once before but not with their recipe. The receipt called for 2/3 cup of sliced almonds and then you put those in a food processor. I don't have one so I bought almond flour (which is what I used the last time I made them). I did everything else they said to do but my batter was way to thick. I Kept mixing my batter hoping it would get better but it didn't (and I ended up with over mixed macarons). How much almond flour would equal 2/3 of sliced almonds?

NPIC, those 2/3 cup of sliced almonds weigh about 63 grams. A cup of almond flour weighs 112 grams. I'd therefore use a half cup of almond flour here. ;o)
