How to Make 8th Grade Spanish Peanut Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease a jelly roll pan (10x15-inch);set aside. Roll peanuts with rolling pin to crush. Beat egg whites until very stiff, fold in brown sugar and the crushed peanuts. (sounds nuts-pun intended, but it works).Spread mixture in the pan evenly .

    Mark into squares while hot and remove when cool.

    Note:
    I like to cover the pan with quick release foil and spray it anyway. Easy this way.
  2. Frosting is optional, and can use peanut butter frosting or chocolate/peanut butter frosting or white or plain chocolate....
