Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a cookie sheet and dust it with flour.

In a bowl, beat the egg whites, until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the hazelnuts, almonds, sugar, cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of flour, vanilla, and amaretto until all the ingredients are evenly distributed (without deflating the egg whites too much).

Spoon blobs or heaping tablespoons of batter onto a cookie sheet, leaving approximately 1-inch between each cookie. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until firm to the touch. If you prefer chewier cookies, under bake them slightly. Remove the cookies from the oven, transfer them to a wire rack, and let rest for a 1/2 hour, or until cooled.

    I use Air Bake cookie sheets - if you do, too, skip the buttering/flouring of the cookie sheets entirely and just use parchment. I have never had cookies stick so much in my life. Also, cut back the baking time to 25 minutes and check them from there. They are pretty easy to make, so I will be trying again.

    The cookies, they were very good. The nuts gave it good texture. I did think to give them four stars, but my cookies were not made as perfect as they could have been. So, as a tip, DO NOT BURN THE NUTS!!!
