we are SO close. Nice crunch, feet, but just a little bit tacky as you hit the bottom of the cookie.
details of our successful-in-Seattle-winter recipe:
1.) drop all blinds in your kitchen in attempt to block out damp and cold.
2.) 3 egg whites, 2 Tbl. granulated sugar. Next time + a pinch of cream of tartar.
3.) 28 Tbl. powdered sugar; 8 Tbl ground almonds; 1 Tbl. baking cocoa; pinch salt.
4.) 1 hour rising time.
5.) Oven 280 degrees F, 15-16 minutes on cookie sheet (low/no sides).
will update again after next attempt!
