  6. Then let them cool completely on the kitchen counter.

  1. In a saucepan, heat the egg whites with the flour and cornflour over low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until you have a smooth mixture.
  2. Remove from the heat and after it has cooled, leave it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  3. Then transfer it to the bowl of the mixer and beat it for half a minute with the whisk until it becomes fluffy.
  4. Add the blossom water and mix for a little more.
  5. Finally, fill a piping bag with icing sugar and every cookie.
