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!
