Posted in reply to a "recipe request." I've had this recipe for some years, and I'm clueless as to where/who I got it from. The 20 minute "prep time" includes the 10 minutes to roll the baked cookies.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F Spray 2 baking sheets with vegetable cooking spray.
  2. Using a food processor with the metal blade, combine Confectioners' sugar and ground nuts; process until mixture is very fine.
  3. Add granulated sugar, flour and salt and process until well combined.
  4. Add egg whites, corn syrup, margarine and vanilla and process until dough is formed.
  5. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls (about 2 1/2-inches apart), onto prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake cookies until edges are golden (about 5 minutes).
  7. Remove from oven and place sheets on wire racks.
  8. Using spatula, place cookie on a clean kitchen towel (NOT terrycloth); and carefully roll the warm cookie tightly around the handle of wooden spoon or dowel, pressing firmly as you roll.
  9. Carefully, slide the cookie off the spoon handle.
  10. Place cookie on a wire rack to finish cooling.
