    Lalaloula's Note:

    These traditional German cookies are very easy to make and taste delicious. They are also rather light for a cookie, so you can enjoy a few more. ;) If you feel like it, try out other nuts in place of hazelnuts or maybe grated coconut.

      I have never made macaroons or really eaten a true macaroon, so this was quite fun to make and eat. I am not sure if I made them correctly as I haven't seen a photo of one either, but I sure enjoyed the sweet nutty flavor of these cookies. I did sub pecans for the hazel nuts as it was what I had on hand and made 1/2 of the recipe. For those in the US, it is 2 egg whites and 1/2 cup sugar and 3 1/2 ounces nuts for the amounts stated in recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Newest Tag Game.
