Author Notes

A dacquoise (French: [dakwɑz]) is a cookie or cake made with layers of almond and hazelnut meringue on a buttery biscuit base
The term dacquoise can also refer to the nut meringue layer itself. Here are excellent Pistachio dacquoise recipes that you can use to insert many different kinds of entremets cake. This item is without any food colouring. I did blend pistachios from a grinder and make it into a powder; it works really well. You can try it out with almond, Hazelnut, Pistachios and let me know how it turns up. Pistachio dacquoise
This can be eaten alone

I'm sure this recipe is well intended and I don't doubt that you made a wonderful dacquoise, but this is incomprehensible. How long are we meant to whip the egg whites at high speed after adding the sugar? And/or what consistency should we whip the egg whites to (soft/medium/stiff peaks? Stiff but not dry?) before *and* after adding the sugar?
What consistency are we looking for in the ground pistachios? Are we adding the sugar and pastry flour to the grinder along with the pistachios, or mixing them all together afterward?
What indicators are we meant to look for to know that the dacquoise is finished baking?
Any of these details are things I could perfectly understand leaving out of your notes for your own personal reference on how to make this recipe, as you probably already have the answers in mind, but please remember we don't have access to the things you know unless you tell us.
