Haselnussmakronen

Ellen Allard

Made with pulverized filberts. While in Germany, my landlord gave me this recipe. I have made it many times, and it is a real treat. Cookies can be stored for several weeks in tightly sealed jars or tins.

Directions

  1. Combine the ground nuts, cocoa, lemon peel, salt, and vanilla in a small bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until they foam and thicken slightly. Sprinkle the sugar over them, and continue to beat until whites form stiff, unwavering peaks on the beater when lifted out of the bowl. Gently fold the nut mixture into the whites until thoroughly combined.
  3. Coat a large baking sheet with 2 teaspoons softened butter. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart. Let the cookies rest at room temperature for 1 hour before baking.
  4. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Place the cookies in the middle of the oven; bake for 30 minutes, or until they are firm. With a spatula, carefully transfer the cookies to a rack to cool.

Regarding whipping the egg whites, the reason to avoid plastic bowls is that they tend to absorb grease/fat, which really interferes with the whipping process. Just sayin'. (Glass, stainless steel, or preferably copper are better choices.) I really enjoyed these cookies. They are delicate in both taste and texture, made unique by the ground hazelnuts, with a hint of lemon. Great recipe, and easy as long as you have blanched (skinned) and toasted hazelnuts on hand. If not, toast shelled hazelnuts in a 350F oven for 10-15 minutes, transfer to a bowl and cover with a towel, let steam one minute, then rub off the skins. (That's the method I used.)

For beating egg whites successfully, your bowl and beaters have to be entirely free of oil or fat. Plastic bowls will not work for some reason. It helps to have the eggs at room temperature. If there is any trace of yolk in the white it will not beat well, either. These are very tasty, airy macaroon type cookies.

These were just what I wanted. Not too sweet and very nutty. They are a little crumbly.
