    My husband got me a long coveted Bosch universal mixer for Christmas and I christened it with this lovely little recipe. I only used the mixer to beat the egg whites and sugar and then folded in the rest with a rubber spatula. I only used about 1/3 cup light brown sugar instead of the cup of white since we light things not too sweet and they were perfection! I knew that the choc chips would add lots of sweetness. I used Bob's blanched almond meal. I melted my chips in a make shift double boiler but the chocolate did firm up a bit by the time I added it, but it all came together fine, just the same. I did put them really close together not realizing they do spread and flatten a bit so some of them were attached. Perfect excuse to gobble up as many imperfect ones as I could, as those don't count, especially if you're standing up while doing this. Oh, and I just realized, I forgot the salt, but I guess we didn't miss it!

    YUMMY!!! These have a truly rich chocolate flavor unlike the many recipes which call for cocoa. I cook on baking stones & needed to cook my cookies a good 20-25 minutes but the texture was still wonderful! A keeper for the Passover section of my cookbook. Thanks for sharing!

    I made these little gems with some left over egg whites, they only lasted a few hours and then they were all gone. A breeze to make in kenwood/ kitchenaid mixer. A word of advice make sure your ground almonds are super fine, I used bought almond meal and there were some course pieces in it which kind of hurt the roof our mouths.

    I love these cookies. I had some egg whites to use up and this was a perfect way to do that.

    What an elegant cookie! So simple yet so tasty. A little bit chewy, a little bit crunchy and a whole lot yummy! I served these as a light dessert with vanilla ice cream, but they are also a great companion to a cup of coffee or tea. This recipe made exactly 40 cookies for me. I used Trader Joe's Almond Meal (which I always have in my freezer). For those with wheat issues, I note that this is a gluten-free cookie. Thanks Kittencal!
