Description

Requiring just five simple ingredients, this recipe for Patience Cookies leaves you with a soft and fluffy cookie with a light lemon flavor. Made from stiffly whipped egg whites, these cookies are light and fluffy in texture. Watch the cookies closely while baking as they only need a short amount of time and can burn or overcook quickly. Tap the baking tray with the unbaked cookies on it before baking to remove any air bubbles.

Ingredients

280 milliliters egg whites (approximately 10 eggs)
salt (or cream of tartar)
400 grams sugar
460 grams flour
3 drops lemon extract

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Celsius.
2Beat the egg whites with a pinch of the salt or cream of tartar until foam starts to build up. Then add in the sugar little by little until a shiny meringue forms.
3Fold in the sifted flour and lemon extract carefully so as not to lose volume.
4Fill a pastry bag with the mixture. Squeeze out 3-centimeter-diameter circles on a baking tray covered with aluminum foil. Try to keep the tip of the pastry bag very close the the pan so the circles do not have much volume.
5Once the baking tray is filled, lift it up a bit and let it fall on the table to knock any bubbles out of the circles and let them flatten even more. Let rest for a few minutes.
6Bake for 4 to 5 minutes then let cool another 5 minutes still inside the baking tray but outside the oven before removing.
