Re: the cookie thread

One of my favourites, a recipe from Austria:

Date-Almond Kisses

1/2 lbs almonds, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 lbs dates, deseeded
2-3 Tbsp rum
4 egg whites
1/2 lbs sugar

dark chocolate

Chop the dates or cut them to fine stripes. Soak them in the rum.
Beat the egg whites very stiff, gradually adding the sugar.
Gently stir in the dates and almonds

Lien a baking tray with greese proof paper and with 2 spoons put little mounds (about walnut-size) of the mixture on it. Leave about an inch of space between them as they might run a little.

Bake at 200C / 390F

Leave to cool and then ice with dark chocolate. Keep them in an airtight container to keep them crispy.
