RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
Forgotten Cookies, American
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.

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
