This week on French Fridays with Dorie we are finally making a dessert! Dorie says "named for its texture (croquant means crunchy), the cookie is so crisp that there's no way to eat it silently."
Dorie gave a few suggestions on nuts and I went with hazelnuts and almonds.
This cookie had very few ingredients; nuts, sugar, egg whites and flour. It made for an interesting looking dough.
These crunchy cookies are meringue-like in texture with the addition of nuts. Definitely crunchy. My review, I should have cooked them a little longer. My first batches were cooked but pale. My last batch was the darkest and most crunchy. My book club liked them, members kept going back for more. I took some to work and the nut lovers in the group loved them.
