Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C ). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • In a small bowl mix together the egg whites, sugar, and nuts until well blended. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls, three inches apart, onto the lined cookie sheets. Using the back of a spoon, dipped in water, flatten into rounds about 1.5 inches in diameter. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be lightly browned. Let cool slightly before removing from sheets. If the cookies are stuck, they need to be baked a little longer.

  • In a plastic bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave oven, stirring every 15 or 30 seconds until smooth and creamy. This can also be done over a double boiler. Spread the chocolate onto the flat side of a cookie and stick it together with the flat side of another cookie to make a sandwich until all the cookies are used up.

This would be a 5 star recipe if the instructions were more clear. I think the reason people are having trouble with this recipe is because you have the whip the egg whites until foamy then gradually beat in the sugar until you get a meringue. Next you fold in the walnuts and bake as directed. I got wonderful fluffy cookies following this method. Read More

I made 2/3 of a batch (I only had 1 c. of walnuts). DISASTER. I ended up with three sandwiches. The first batch I guess I didn't cook or didn't cool long enough. I ended up with a huge pile of cookie mush while trying to scrap them off the Silpat. The second batch I cooked for 15-20 mins. and this was the batch that actually was ok. I had to let them cool for a while and then carefully pull them off of my Silpat with my fingers (NO SPATULAS they just make a mess). So I thought I'd try to spray my Silpats with some Pam. That resulted in two batches of extremely flat burned unicookies with major holes. Not salvageable. We did enjoy the three cookies we could eat but not worth an expensive bag of walnuts. Read More

Mine did not come out completely like the pictures but it was close enough for me and everyone else. They were DELICIOUS. Big hit in my family. I did lower the cooking temperature to 325 F and cooked them until just the edges were lightly browned (about 8-10 minutes I think). As other reviews state it is far easier to try to get the paper off of the cookie not the other way around. Read More

Definitely takes some practice to get them just right but very enjoyable! I used dark brown sugar instead of white and used a mixer to beat it until it was light brown. Its the cooking time that's the difficult to perfect. I baked them for 10 minutes in a 300 degree oven. As far as getting them off. I found the best approach was to try to get the paper off the cookie instead of the cookie off the paper. The completed cookies are VERY good and very fancy. If you're willing to put in the time and effort its a great reward. Read More

Very tasty almost too sweet. I didn't beat unto peaks the cookies were very flat almost lace-like. I let the sheet cool on a rack and then turned upsidedown on the rack. After a few minutes I was able to carefully pull the sheet off the cookies. My kids like them a lot. Read More

Cookies were only okay not worth the time it took to peel the paper off of them. It didn't work to just do them on a cookie sheet with Pam. the best way to cook them was on wax paper sprayed down with some Pam they still stuck a little. Won't make again. Read More
