• 6 large eggs divided into yolks and whites (room temperature preferred) • 1 cup granulated sugar divided (200g) • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (85g) • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch • Granulated sugar for sprinkling  over cookies

Place egg whites in a large, completely clean, dry, and grease-free bowl. Use a mixer to beat until you have soft peaks. Then (1 tbps at a time), add ½ cup of the granulated sugar.

In a separate bowl combine egg yolks, remaining sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat on medium/high speed until lightened and color and  slightly thickened.

Gently pour the yolk mixture over the egg whites. Sift flour and cornstarch over the mixture and use a spatula to gently fold everything together until completely combined.

Sprinkle additional sugar evenly over cookies. Then transfer to 350F oven and bake 15-18 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden. Cool 10 mins then transfer to wire rack.
