Hazelnut Cookies


  • 3 cups of hazelnuts, toasted and skinned 
  • 1 cup of hazelnut for decorations 
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 180 degrees . Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Pulse nuts and sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Scrape into a large bowl. Beat egg whites and salt in another large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the hazelnuts mixture. Add vanilla and gently but thoroughly mix until combined. Drop the dough by the tablespoon 3 cm apart on the prepared baking sheets. Each cookie decorates with hazelnut.  Bake the cookies until golden brown, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through, 15-20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes. Gently transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve cookies with a cup of black coffee or herbal tea!
