A delicious Irish treat.

Makes 10 cookies

2 eggs, separated
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup hot water
Buttercream frosting
Finely chopped salted roasted peanuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and butter a 9-inch square baking dish. Place egg yolks in a large bowl and beat with sugar and vanilla until well-blended. In a second large bowl, beat egg whites until they hold soft peaks. In a medium-sized bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Alternate adding flour mixture and hot water to the egg yolk mixture, stirring ingredients with a wooden spoon until just blended. Use a large spatula to fold in egg whites until just blended. Pour batter into baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes then invert onto a cutting board. Cut into squares. Frost the top of each square and generously sprinkle with nuts, pressing nuts into frosting. Serve with coffee or tea.

Diabetes is not a disease, it is a coidntion.When your blood sugar overflows due to insensitivity to insulin or a greatly reduced production of insulin,you have diabetes. So the two most common causes of diabetes are: over consumption of sugar producing foods and a deterioration of your insulin-producing pancreas.So, you need to reduce or cut down on sugar producing foods such as carbohydrates and sugary foods and increase your anti-oxidant rich foods such as vegetables and fruits ( which are not so sweet, of course). Exercise regularly and monitor your glucose level in your blood daily. Have a happy life! Best of luck.
