Here’s the Italian cookie recipe for this month. As kids we really liked these Grandma baked cookies – I hope you enjoy them too.
Ugly but Good Cookies: Brutti ma Buoni
4 egg whites, room temperature
Place whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and whip to soft peak. Add the sugar steadily and beat for 2 minutes. Stop the machine and add the flour, vanilla, amaretto, zest, and cocoa powder. Mix for 1 minute and stop the machine. Stir in the nuts quickly and place 2-inch blobs on cookie sheet 1-inch apart. Bake 30 minutes until crisp. Remove and allow to cool.
Baking Tip for the month
Unless otherwise directed, let cookies cool for 1 minute on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack. Let baking sheets cool completely before placing the next batch of cookie dough on it. Otherwise, the heat from the baking sheet will soften the dough and cause it to spread.
