After my pretty long phase of baking cakes or candies or energy bars I was ready again for my real passion, the Cookies. I have found the following recipe long time ago on David Lebovitz’ homepage but these cookies never made it to my blog until today. Why that? Why have I waited so long to share my experiences with this recipe? Well, there is a simple reason for that: They were never stored longer than one day in the cookies boxes. 🙂 Unfortunately I never had the time to take a photo of them as they were too fast gone again. But things need to be changed and improved constantly and I am happy to have had the chance to store them one day longer this time.
What I also like very much here is the simplicity of the recipe. They are so easy to make and the result is just very tasty. In the original recipe it says to melt dark chocolate and dip the cookies into it. I like this version as well but prefer to mix in some chopped white chocolate. I love the combination of coconut and white chocolate and I really think that they go perfect together!
What is your perfect cookie combination? Think about… 😉

4 egg whites,
220g cane sugar,

remove from heat and let cool down to room temperature, mix in 100g of chopped white chocolate and 1/2 tsp of vanilla sugar and make balls with your hands of about 2cm diameter, bake for approx. 18-20 minutes (mine are perfect at 18 minutes)
