Oregon hazelnut cookies

Yield: 84 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 Egg whites
2¼ cup Sugar
½ teaspoon Vanilla
1 pounds Oregon hazelnuts finely chopped
½ pounds Whole Oregon hazelnuts
Water
Confectioners sugar

Beat the egg whites until stiff, then gradually add the sugar and continue beating for about ¼ hour, then add vanilla and grated nuts. Refrigerate for several hours, then drop by teaspoonfuls on unglazed paper-covered cookie sheets. Press a whole hazelnut into the center of each cookie. Let stand overnight, then bake in 300 oven for approximately 1 hour, or until cookies can be lifted from paper.

While still warm, ice lightly with frosting made by stirring water into 1 cup of confectioners' sugar until it is creamy.
