Cookie recipes with egg whites?

I often have leftover egg whites in my freezer, and am looking to make some cookies. Anyone have any great cookie recipes that use up egg whites? Thanks!

I suspect this is the recipe you're talking about, and it's a favorite of mine:

I've made it often without the cocoa nibs (still great) and once or twice substituting sunflower seeds for the walnuts, or just leaving them out (for a nut-allergic friend).

Brutti ma Buoni --Italian "Ugly but Good" cookies. There lots of recipes online, including from Mari Batali and others. Mario's recipe calls for 7 egg whites.

Almond rochers from Tartine have always been a favorite of mine.

One of my favorite cookies -- that also used a lot of egg whites -- is the famous Italian Pignoli cookies. i'm not where my recipe is right now, but I'd be glad to share. OTOH, you could probably find it on NickMalgieri.com

Smitten Kitchen has a delicious dark chocolate coconut macaroon recipe on her website. Those (or her chocolate chip meringues) are my go tos whenever I have egg whites to get rid of!
