Happy French Friday! We’re taking a break from the fishiness this week with a super simple cookie called Croquants.
Croquants are a crisp and crunchy cookie made from nuts, sugar, egg whites, and a small amount of flour. Almonds and hazelnuts are the most commonly used nuts in Croquants, but I used Dorie’s “house favorite” salted cashews.
These might really be the fastest, easiest cookies I have ever made. Mixing up the ingredients took about two minutes with a bowl and spatula. No need to haul out the mixer!
I loved these little cookies. They are light as air and very crisp. The flavor reminds me of something, but I can’t put my finger on it. Using the cashews was a good call, but I imagine they would be very good with almonds too.
Have a great weekend!

Maybe I would have liked these better with salted cashews. So glad these were winners at your house!!!
These were fast and easy weren’t they? Your cookies look tasty!! 🙂
Loved this chewy, crunchy cookie! Sure to be part of my cookie baking repertoire from now on! Yours turned out very pretty!
My idea of a recipe, quick and easy, and delicious. Yours look so
There was so much good about this cookie. These were good with almonds (or at least a combo of almonds and hazelnuts). I can’t wait to try with cashews and other nuts too.
It was nice to have a dessert for a change and something easy too. We enjoyed these.
Given my antipathy for cookie making, I loved how easy these were to make.
I would love to try these with cashews
I used salted cashew too and we loved them! I want to try pecans and mixed nuts too. Delicious, super easy and they keep well. What’s not to love? Yours look great.
