Cigarettes, the ice cream cookie

To go with a cup of coffee, tea, ice cream... jam, here is the recipe I chose from Vovoï's cookbook today. It worked out pretty well !

For twenty cookies,

   you will need :   
4 eggwhites
- at least 20 minutes in the fridge -

3.5 oz of softened butter (100g)
- cut in dice and let it soften an hour before use -
a big 1/2 cup of white sugar (5.3 oz / 150g)
a cup of flour (4.2 oz / 120g)

Turn on the oven at 430°F

Beat the eggwhites with the sugar 2 or 3 minutes
- if you use an electric one, choose the slowest speed -
Add the flour, and mix it with small circular moves with a wooden spoon, starting from the center, and growing with the flour being mixed. Add the softened butter and mix again.

Butter the cooking tray, or the wax paper.
Make some circular shape of 1.6 to 1.9 inch wide (4/5cm) with a teaspoon.
Space them well,
- at least 1.8 inch apart from each other -

Put the tray in the oven 5 to 10 minutes, until the border of the cake has a nice golden color.
Get them out and make them slide on your work table.

Use the stick of your wooden spoon to roll them around it.
You have to be quick, and don't burn yourself ! They get hard pretty fast !

Ready to eat when they're cool !
