I tried these this morning and it just DIDN'T work out well at all. They were burnt after 20 minutes of being in the oven.

I took them out a half hour later and the bottoms were burnt and I did use a non stick cookie sheet.What could have went so wrong?

This sounds like Jan Hagel, a Dutch cookie, that is made the same way except on spreads the slightly beaten egg white on the dough and then presses sliced almonds into it before baking.
