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!

Thank you so much, these are the most delicious biscuits I've ever cooked, also because these are the most easy to cook : P
