When you serve these delectable cookies to your family and guests, they will elicit comments such as
- 2 eggs -
- 1/2 tsp salt -
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar -
- 1 cup sugar -
- 3 cups ground nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc.) -
- coconut (optional) -
1. Beat together the eggs, salt, and vanilla. Add the sugar and then nuts (and coconut). The mixture will be very thick. Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
2. Bake at 350°F/180°C for 15 minutes or until golden. I know you will want to eat them now, but let them harden a bit before you remove them from the pan, or they’ll fall apart. Store them in the freezer, if they make it there!
Note: Make the cookies small, as they tend to spread a bit. You want them smaller and rounder, as opposed to flatter and bigger. If you really want to dress them up, you can drizzle your favorite chocolate glaze on them, but they are scrumptious as is.
