This northern Italian cookie is crispy on the outside and chewy within, with a nice nutty flavor.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Grease cookies sheets.
  • In a large bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar and beat until mixture is thick and white. Stir in chopped almonds and chopped hazelnuts.
  • Pour mixture into saucepan over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until thick and beige, about 10 minutes. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake about 20 minutes, until cookies are dry to the touch. Let cool on wire rack.
