 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Hazelnut meats (blanched
  • -or unblanched is okay)
  • 6 Egg whites
  • 2 3/4 c Brown sugar, sifted
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • White sugar


BF> Hazelnuts are available at most stores under the name of
Filberts. BF> They should be blanched. To blanch, boil the nuts
for 5 minutes and BF> when they are cool enough to handle, remove
the skins. To grind, BF> place about 1/4 cup at a time in a
blender, or chop as finely as you BF> can with a sharp knife.

Grind nuts. Beat egg whites with salt until stiff. Add sugar to egg
whites a little at a time, beating constantly. Add vanilla and then
carefully fold in nuts. Shape into 1" balls and roll in sugar to
coat. Bake on a greased sheet at 325 for about 15 min, maybe 20.

Tip from Joy of Cooking: 2 lb hazelnuts in the shell = 1 lb nut meats.
