4 Eggs, Separated

2/3 Cup of White Sugar

7/8 Cup all-purpose Flour

1/2 Tsp of Baking Powder


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper. Fit large pastry bag with plain 1/2 inch round tube (or coupler).

Place egg whites in bowl and beat on high until soft peaks start to form.

Slowly add 2 tablespoons of the sugar and continue beating until stiff and glassy.

In another bowl, beat egg yolks and remaining sugar until thick and very pale in color.

Sift flour and baking powder together on a sheet of wax paper. Fold half of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Fold in flour and then add the remaining egg whites.

Transfer mixture to pastry bag and pipe out onto prepared baking sheets. I piped mine in the shape of circles so that they could fit into my bourbon glasses.

Bake 8 minutes.
