  1. For the classical way you would use three egg white instead of two whole eggs. I use the whole eggs, as I start to collect to many egg yolk through christmas baking time
  2. Make a big portion and freeze the cookies as soon they cooled down. That is what I do, and each time I have guests I just take them 20 minutes before serving out of the freezer to defrost them. They taste totally fresh.
