Swiss Cookie: Meringue

Meringue with double cream from a little fondue place in the mountains (Western Switzerland).

Just a few of the lovely cookies I sampled while away :-P

Interesting facts: macaroons and meringues are generally wheat-free and gluten-free. Macaroons have a substantial amount of protein due to the ground nut flour and egg whites typically present. (Both are all generally high in sugar too.)

Swiss cookies

Maybe about 10 - 15 years ago I had eaten a cookie like the one you have pictured here with the jam and the nut macaroon. It was amazing and I've always wanted to find a recipe. Would you have any idea of a recipe or the name of that cookie?

Wish I knew... good chance

Wish I knew... good chance it's a French cookie. If anyone else knows please chime in!
