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.!......

How to Make Holiday Pirouettes

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!
