T here are two kinds of cookie-eaters in the world. One likes to eat a whole cookie in one–maybe two bites. (My husband) The other takes small bites, savoring every morsel. I like to nibble (a la Angela of The Office) like a little mouse and make it last as lo-o-o-o-n-g as possible.
Cafe Volcano cookies are for the first kind. One bite and the meringue cookie filled with nuts disintegrates in to a million little crumbs and pieces. Delicious, crackly, melt-in-your-mouth pieces. But they are all over everywhere if you aren’t careful. My cookies, pictured here, were a little too big for one bite, hence, the mess.
If you aren’t into squirrel food, Cafe Volcano cookies won’t be your favorites.
They are for nut lovers. I substituted pecans for walnuts and toasted them in the microwave to save time.
