These Nut Cup Cookies are light, airy, and filled with a delicious nutty flavor. They're like no other cookie you'll ever taste. They're simply the best!
*Disclaimer - This recipe was originally published in 2011. I'm working hard to update all my older recipes with recipe cards, new photos, and additional recipe information. But, getting to all of them will take time. Please bear with me. In the meantime let me assure you that this recipe is still a winner and one I'm sure you'll be well pleased with when you make it at home.
These cookies are so flavorful and delicious, with just the right balance of nuts to sweet that I didn't want to mess with perfection. There, I said it! LOL
-Using a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer (or if you really want to burn some delicious holiday calories, use a whisk), beat the egg whites until stiff.
Now, this is the point where my mom used to dot the tops of each cookie with a pretty little dollop of buttercream icing.
I had every intention of doing this step (honest I did) but after sampling 1 (maybe more) of these delicious little babies without the icing, I came to the conclusion that it just wasn't necessary.
What I did decide to do, however, just to dress them up a bit, was to dust the tops with a tiny bit of powdered sugar.
In my opinion, it was just the right call and the perfect touch to add to these perfect little holiday morsels, and let me tell you...they are simply delicious!
