Accessories you need



I'm sure we've all experienced the sinking feeling of watching your almost perfect egg whites collapse before your eyes after you decide to beat them for just a few seconds more. Don't throw them out though - turn them into these biscuits instead and let us know how you went in the comments!

Collapsed egg whites aren't something I like to make a habit of, so this recipe hasn't been thoroughly tested.
-Do you need three egg whites? No, that was how many I was trying to whip up to make macarons when I came up with this recipe. Adjust the quantities of this recipe based on the quantities of egg whites you have in your bowl.
-Do the egg whites need to be heated? I don't know, but that's what I did to buy myself some thinking time and they seemed to be a bit thicker so I've put it in the recipe.
-Do you need to use almond meal and hazelnut meal? No, I had 150 g almond meal (making macarons, remember?) and felt the dough was still too sticky so I added some hazelnut meal I found after rummaging around.

This whole recipe is an experiement so go ahead and experiment with the flavours. What tweaks did you make?
