Regarding whipping the egg whites, the reason to avoid plastic bowls is that they tend to absorb grease/fat, which really interferes with the whipping process. Just sayin'. (Glass, stainless steel, or preferably copper are better choices.) I really enjoyed these cookies. They are delicate in both taste and texture, made unique by the ground hazelnuts, with a hint of lemon. Great recipe, and easy as long as you have blanched (skinned) and toasted hazelnuts on hand. If not, toast shelled hazelnuts in a 350F oven for 10-15 minutes, transfer to a bowl and cover with a towel, let steam one minute, then rub off the skins. (That's the method I used.)

Plum Clafouti
The most time-consuming part of this is pitting the plums. Besides that, this is delicious. I used 1/3 cup spelt flour (whole grain) and 3 tbsp. total sugar. The tart plums are delicious!
