  1. Grind the cookies and mix 120g (¼ lbs.) with 60g (2.1 oz.) melted butter. Then spread out the mix in a mold and set aside.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add 170g (6 oz.) sugar, then the hazelnut flour, flour and cocoa. Spread out the meringue over the cookie mix. Bake for 20 minutes at 180°C (350°F).
