Hickory Nut Macaroons

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Gradually add powdered sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating at medium speed just until combined. Then beat 1 to 2 minutes more or until well combined. Fold in the nuts by hand.
  2. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined or foil-lined cookie sheets (grease foil).
  3. Bake in a 325 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until edges are very light brown.* Transfer cookies to wire racks and let cool. Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

It is normal for these cookies to split around the edges as they bake.
