will have to try this again - completely mess and very runny the first time, think it was the egg whites not firming up enough and using break free egg whites
Italian Hazelnut Cookies
From EatingWell: September/October 2008
These crispy cookies are made with Piedmontese staples—hazelnuts and eggs—and called Brutti Ma Buoni: literally, “Ugly But Good.” But they are really more plain-looking than “ugly,” and pack a powerful, sweet, nutty burst of flavor, making them welcome at any table.
8 Reviews for Italian Hazelnut Cookies
Just made these. It was pretty easy and very tasty. The ratio of ingredients is perfect. I just want mine in a ball rather than flat. Picky I know.
These are a popular cookie at my house, especially during the holidays! my Nonna would add chocolate to this recipe, and a little powdered sugar, to give then a more "ugly" but delicious feel!
Recently, I was shocked to have come across these cookies (the chocolate version) in a local Italian market in my neighborhood. The cookie company, Cookies con Amore, did an impressive job of reminding me of Nonna's cookie touch!
