An authentic recipe from my hometown of Sardinia. These spongy, airy, light, and slightly crunchy cookies are a true Italian classic!

Ingredients  –All purpose flour –Eggs  -Granulated sugar –Potato starch (or corn starch) –Vanilla extract –Baking powder –Salt –Powdered sugar  *See recipe  quantities.

Separate egg yolks and egg whites. Place the egg whites and half of the sugar in a stand mixer with whisk attachment. Beat until stiff peaks form.

Mix the egg yolks, vanilla, and remaining sugar until combined. Add egg yolk mixture to the egg whites, a little at a time, until completely incorporated. Do not over mix.

Sift in the dry ingredients, flour mixture, to the egg mixture and incorporate well. Careful not to over mix the batter.

Spoon batter to a piping bag or pastry bag with a wide tip. Pipe the batter onto prepared baking sheets Squeeze out onto the baking tray, keep them a few inches apart.

Bake about 15 minutes until well risen and golden. Do not over bake the cookies.
