I wish you a happy Monday!
To make the day (and the whole week) at least as sweet as you are I have a great recipe for you:
I loved them when I was growing up… I remember searching the whole box just to find the one letter that I needed to finish writing my name.
These are super crunchy and chocolatey and pretty easy to make.
Sounds awesome, right?
makes about 120
- 4 egg whites
- 1 pinch of salt
- 150g sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
- 150g flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Beat egg whites and salt until it starts to get stiff. Slowly add sugar and vanilla sugar and go on whipping until it’s really firm and the sugar dissolved (about 3 minutes). Mix flour, cocoa, cardamom and cinnamon, sift onto the egg white and fold in carefully.
Cover serveral baking trays with parchment paper. Spoon the batter into a plastic piping bag and cut off a little tip. Now pipe the letters and let it sit for 15 minutes.
While you wait it’s time to heat up the oven to 350°F.
Bake each tray at a time for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
Now it’s your turn to make these and send lovely messages!
Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
