  • Makes: Makes 18 large cookies.

Ingredients

3 cups walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts

4 cups icing sugar

2/3 cup cocoa

1/2 tsp. fine sea salt

4 large egg whites

1 Tbsp. good vanilla extract

Directions

1Preheat oven to 350F.

2Toast your walnuts or pecans, cool them and roughly chop them. In a large bowl, stir together the icing sugar, cocoa and salt. Add the nuts, then stir in the egg whites and vanilla. Stir until well combined.

3Line a baking sheet with parchment and drop the batter in large mounds (about 2 Tbsp. each - I used a heaped soup spoon) spacing them well away from each other - no more than 6 cookies per sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes - they will spread, puff, crack on top, get glossy and then turn matte. Slide the cookies on the parchment off the sheet onto a cooling rack and let them cool.
