For the most authentic flavor, hickory nuts are a must (shop for them online), but toasted pecans are tasty too. Ingredients 4 large egg whites 4 cups powdered sugar 2 cups chopped hickory nuts, black walnuts, or toasted pecans Directions Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl beat egg whites with a mixer on high until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating on medium just until well combined. Beat on high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold in chopped nuts. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake until very light brown (cookies will puff and sides will split), 15 minutes. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
