- 110 grams almond meal;
- 2 egg whites (L);

Beat the eggwhites until foamy and add the sugar. Beat until the egg white stiffens. Mix the egg white with a spatula gently through the almond meal.
Lay baking paper on the baking plate. Put the mixture in a piping bag. Pipe small rounds about 2 cm on the bakingplate. Let the cookies air dry for 45 minutes. Then bake the cookies 11 minutes in a preheated oven (150 degrees Celsius). Let cool down to roomtemperature.
Filling: In a bowl mix the sugar with the egg whites. Put the bowl on a pan with boiling water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the boiling water. Whisk the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Get the bowl of the pan and with a mixer mix until the egg is cooled down and thickened (about 10 minutes). Add the butter, 1 tablespoon each time, until the butter is fully incorporated. Mix on high speed for another 4 minutes. Put the filling in a piping bag and pipe small rounds on one cookie. Put a second cookie on top. Roll the cookies through the crushed candy canes. Repeat for every cookie you baked.
