This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by MacDuff of The Lonely Sidecar. She has chosen Cafe Volcano Cookies as this week's challenge.
I was glad I read the TWD forum P&Q, because I thought that the photo of the chocolate meringues on the next page were what these were supposed to look like - and so did a few other people!
These biscuits are basically just nuts and egg white and sugar and coffee powder - sounds weird, but they taste delicious! They are crispy and crunchy and meringue-like in flavour. I am not as enamoured of them as Dorie apparently was, but I thought they tasted very nice, and was surprised at how the teaspoonfuls of mixture puffed up in the oven.
If I had leftover eggwhites and nuts, I might make these again - they were quite tasty and very easy to make.
To see how the other TWD bakers went, visit the blogroll, and the recipe will be on MacDuff's site when it is Tuesday her time (she is in the U.S.).
