 Over the last couple of days I've been busy, busy, busy.
I've made about a dozen of these squares for my quilt project.

I think it is coming along nicely.

Here's a sneek preview of what it will look like when I'm finished.

It's going to be a gift so I hope it will look good.

It's been a while since I posted about anything I've cooked.
Thought I would try a recipe from this site - they looked so good I just had to try them...
and only 5 ingredients.

2 cups icing sugar
2 egg whites
150 g chopped, roasted hazelnuts
1 teasp vanilla  essence
one third of a cup  cocoa

No beating, just mix it all together in a bowl then place desert spoonfuls on a tray.
Leave plenty of room for spreading.
Cook at 160 C for 12 - 15 minutes.
You know they are cooked when they puff up and crack on the top.
The mixture made 13 of these seriously decadent cookies.

Light and crunchy and a little chewy in the middle.
Very sweet and chocolatey

Ration  one per person.
Yum !!!

Not good for the diet !
