  • Lastly, beat in the vanilla extract and whip just enough to incorporate.
  • Using a large rubber spatula gently fold in dry ingredients into the whipped egg whites in four additions until well blended.
  • The mixture will deflate a little bit, so fold quickly and gently to minimize the deflation.

    These do look very light and airy. I like that there are crushed cashews in them. I’ve never added that to a cookie recipe before. I would love to try these.
