 Ingredients List

  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 c Superfine granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Toasted almonds, ground
  • 3/4 c Toasted hazelnuts, ground
  • 2 tb All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Nutmeg
  • Confectioner's sugar


1 Egg white
1 1/2 c Confectioner's sugar
1 ts Water

In small mixer bowl, beat 2 egg whites until soft peaks form (tips curl
over). Gradually beat in the 1 cup of superfine sugar, beating until stiff
peaks form (tips stand straight up). Stir together nuts, flour, and spices;
fold in beaten egg whites. Let mixture rest 30 minutes or longer so nuts
can absorb mixture. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness on surface lightly
sprinkled with powdered sugar. Cut with star-shapped cookie cutter(*).
Place on greased baking sheet. Bake in 325øF oven for 10 - 15 minutes. Cool
on rack. (*) Dough scraps may be rerolled to 1/2-inch thickness and cut
with scalloped cutter. Bake in 325øF oven for 20 minutes. Store in covered

ICING: Beat 1 egg white slightly. Gradually stir in the remaining 1 1/2 c
confectioner's sugar. Add water till icing is of spreading consistency.
