  • Summary

    Egg whites vary in size, and the quantity of whites used in a meringue affects its texture. When making these cookies, it's best to use a liquid measuring cup to measure the whites. You'll want to chill the cookies overnight to get the perfect balance of crisp and chewy.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups powdered sugar, divided
    • 1 1/4 cups slivered almonds
    • 3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons egg whites (from about 3 large eggs), room temperature, whisked to loosen
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 3 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 61% cacao), finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" cubes
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
    • Gold dust (optional)
