There are a few things that really remind me of the holidays, and one of those is definitely forgotten cookies. My mom would make those and sand tarts around the holidays. So when a friend of ours decided to have a cookie swap party this weekend, they were the first things that came to mind. I’ll make them tonight or tomorrow night and talk mom into making the sand tarts with me when I’m at her house.
The thing about forgotten cookies is that they’re perfect for the impatient like me… very few ingredients and not much time commitment.
Preheat oven to 350
Beat 2 egg whites until foamy. Add 2/3 cup sugar & beat until stiff. Sitr in a pinch of salt, 1 cup chopped nuts and 1 cup chocolate chips. Drop on foil on oven rack. Turn oven off. Leave in oven over night (6-8 hours).
Makes 2 dozen.
*** NOTE: I did make these and the first batch turned out super ugly and sticky. Same thing happened to Cara so here is the trick — After you add the sugar it’s really important you beat the mixture until it’s stiff. And by stiff think cool whip; it should stay formed as the beater goes through it.
