These are the beginning of my Christmas cookie baking.
These little gems are very tasty- a little time consuming- but worth the work and you will be so pleased with the results.
The first 4 cookies I baked 2 long..could not roll but were very good just as a flat cookie..LOL

!watch as the edges brown quickly.!......

Ingredients

COOKIES

2 large
egg whites only
1/2 c
powdered sugar
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 pinch
salt
2 1/2 Tbsp
unsalted melted butter, cooled

GARNISHES

chocolate chips,melted or white frosting
cookie sprinkles, chopped nuts and/or coconut

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 400. Trace 3 or 4 inch circles onto a parchment covered baking sheet or no-stick foil, set aside.
2
In a bowl whisk egg whites and powdered sugar on medium speed until frothy. Stir in flour and salt, then whisk in cooked butter and cream until a smooth batter forms.
3
Use 1 teaspoon of batter for each cookie, dropping batter into the center of the circles on baking sheet.
4
Spread to an thin even layer using an offset spatula.
5
Bake until cookies are just starting to turn golden at the edges and are firm enough to remove from the baking sheet, about 3 minutes or a little less. Remove cookies immediately one at a time and flip bottom side up.
6
Roll into a cylinder and place on paper with table knife slightly holding cookies in shape. If too stiff to roll return to oven for 20 seconds to soften.
-----
Microwave chocolate or frosting to the consistency of thick honey. Dip the ends of the cookies into glaze, then roll in sprinkles of nuts or coconut. Place on a cooling rack and chill for a few minutes.
Note- these freeze well too!
