RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

Forgotten Cookies, American

Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites
  • ²/³ c. sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 1 c. chocolate chip bits (or cornflakes or crisp rice cereal)
  • 1 c. coconut (optional)
Preparation Instructions

Beat egg whites until foamy (eggs should be at room temperature before beating). Gradually, add sugar and continue beating until stiff. Add salt and vanilla and mix well. Add pecans and remaining ingredients.

Preheat oven to 350˚. Drop cookies by the spoonful on the un-greased foil-covered cookie sheet. Place cookies in the oven and immediately turn off oven. Leave cookies in closed oven overnight. Yield: 2 dozen.

Note: Do not open oven to peep in, as this will spoil cookies.
