    FloridaNative's Note:

    These crispy cookies are made with hazelnuts and eggs and called Brutti Ma Buoni: literally, "Ugly But Good." But they are really more plain-looking than ugly, and pack a powerful, sweet, nutty burst of flavor, making them welcome at any table. From Eating Well magazine, October 2008.

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Position 2 racks as close to the center of the oven as possible; preheat to 325 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
    2. 2
      Pulse nuts and sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Scrape into a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Beat egg whites and salt in another large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
    4. 4
      Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the nut mixture. Add vanilla and gently but thoroughly mix until combined.
    5. 5
      Drop the batter by the tablespoons 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
    6. 6
      Bake the cookies until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through.
    7. 7
      Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Gently transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
    9. 9
      When the baking sheets are thoroughly cooled, repeat with the remaining batter.
    10. 10
      NOTE: TO TOAST AND SKIN HAZELNUTS.
    11. 11
      TO TOAST: Cook sliced or chopped nuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
    12. 12
      Toast whole hazelnuts on a baking sheet in a 350 degree F oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.
    13. 13
      TO SKIN: Let the nuts cool for a few minutes, then rub together in a clean kitchen towel to remove most of the papery skins.
