  • Let egg whites stand until at room temperature. Beat the whites until lightly foamy. Add the sugar gradually as you beat. Beat until soft peaks are formed. Fold in the nuts.

  • Transfer this all to a large saucepot. Cook over low heat, stirring all the time, until it thickens and turns a little brown, about 10 minutes.

  • Spoon the cookies onto greased baking sheets by the teaspoonful, about 1 to 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake about 22 minutes, or until dry. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool.

these are decadent! I don't like almonds so I just added more hazelnuts and a nice twist to make them prettier is to dip them in chocolate after they cool. Very wonderful recipe. Read More

I proceeded with the recipe. Everything was fine. Second cooking them on parchment paper the bottoms burned and the tops were sticky. Also the waiting batter changed sort of seperated. What did I do wrong? Read More
