TWD - Cafe Volcano Cookies
If recipe you double,
all you'll bake is trouble.
Clivia's words to bake by. And I forgot them. "Oh, it's just nuts. Just egg whites." What could happen?
So, I haphazardly tossed approximately two cups of egg white into a heap of nuts and then didn't add much sugar because I did't want them too sweet. My volcano batter became runny as lava. Not something that would in any way form a cookie.
To salvage my two precious cups of egg white, I poured everything into my mini-muffin tins.
Amazingly, these turned out delicious! Nutty, chewy, a little chocolately on top. I'm very happy. I added two tablespoons of espresso powder, but couldn't taste it at all. If I were going to do them again, I would add some almond extract to bring out the flavour.
Thanks to MacDuff of Lonely Sidecar for choosing this recipe. Please check out her blog for the complete recipe. Seasons Greetings Everyone!
