Jitterbug

To bake jitterbug requires both tenderly touch and patience and it is a cookie that you can show off on your gatherings.

Mix together all the ingredients for the shortcrust pastry. Let stand in cool and cold few hours before baking.

Beat egg whites until stiff foam. Add the sugar, stirring and whisk for another minute so the meringue will be white and shiny.

Divide the dough into smaller pieces. Take each piece and roll out to a rectangle. Flour table so the dough does not stick. Cut so it gets straight edges. Spread the meringue and roll it all together like a Swiss roll. Cut with a sharp knife the desired size of the cookies. Place the cookies lightly with meringue upwards sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 160 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
