Thankfully you can make variations that change the flavor and add so much interest: like chocolate and espresso. These cookies are light and simple and perfect for a mid-afternoon snack or tea and coffee with company.

  • ¾ cup superfine sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 large egg whites room temperature
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 4 tbsp Dutch process cocoa


  • Whisk together superfine sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl to combine.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip egg whites on medium-low with cream of tartar until light and frothy.
  • Slowly add sugar and cornstarch mixture to egg whites with mixer running, one tablespoon at a time. Increase the mixer to medium-high until stiff peaks and the whites become shiny and glossy in texture.
  • Add espresso powder and cocoa and mix to incorporate. You may need to fold a few times by hand to ensure the cocoa is fully mixed in.
  • Pipe or dollop with spoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets, making sure to create small and flat cookies. Large puffy cookies will bake more hollow and be hard to eat. Top with shaved chocolate (optional).
  • Bake in a preheated 300°F oven for 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and shape of the cookies.
  • Once dry to the touch, pull out of the oven and let cool on baking sheets for 20 minutes.
  • Spread Nutella on the back of one cookie and sandwich with another.

    1. I don’t think there are any substitutes for espresso powder, it is found in the ethnic section at any grocery store. Instant coffee is a very different consistency and flavor than an espresso powder.
