Today I offer horseshoe pecan cookies. A traditional Croatian recipe that will delight your loved ones this festive period. These are nut meringue cookies, flour-free and gluten-free. They are very easy and quick to make and only require 3 ingredients to prepare, not including salt. Crunchy, with a pronounced flavor of roasted nuts, these cookies are perfect to accompany a hot drink. If you like nuts, I highly recommend it.
