    These are also great if you replace the almonds and hazelnuts with shredded coconut.!

    Can you double check the number of egg whites? Are 20-30 made with a single egg white? I'm confused.

    Thanks -

    Yes, with an egg white usually I can bake 20 or 30 cookies, depending on their size. Also because the egg white whipped becomes very voluminous ... In step 1, I wrote two, I am confused because I was making, in that picture, it more and I used 2 egg whites, thanks for the correction!

    Thanks for the recipe - my grandmother used to make these, they're the best! But she never wrote anything down, of course. :) I'll have to try these and see how close they are!
