Everyone loved them!
Easy and not many ingredients make Forgotten cookies one of the recipes you will turn to year after year. A good fact about these cookies is they are gluten free for those on a gluten free diet.
Making Forgotten Cookies
Making Forgotten Cookies is easy and I've provided a photo step by step recipe to make it even easier.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
- 2 Egg whites at room temperature
- 2/3 Cup of sugar
- 1/4 Cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 Cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 1 - 2 Egg whites
Separate two egg whites and place in small mixing bowl.
Hint: Save the egg yellows for french toast or scrambled eggs!
Step 2 - Mix
With mixer set on high, beat egg whites for approximately 3 - 4 minutes.
Step 3 - Form Peaks
Stop mixing when eggs whites form stiff peaks when mixer blades are lifted.
This will form a basic meringue.
Step 4 - Sugar
Turn mixer back on at medium speed and add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Turn mixer off and place bowl in your work space.
Step 5 - Add Goodies
Add the chocolate chips.
You can add additional chocolate chips or fewer according to your tastes.
Step 6 - Pecans
Add the pecans
Again, according to tastes.
Step 7 - Fold
Using a spatula or large spoon, fold in the chips and the nuts gently.
Step 8 - Drop by the Spoonful
Drop tablespoons of mix onto a foil covered cookie sheet
Hint: Close together is fine-these cookies don't spread.
Place cookie sheets (I usually need two) in the preheated 350 degree oven and shut the door.
'TURN OVEN OFF' and go to bed!
When you wake up in the morning (or approximately 5 hours later) your Forgotten Cookies will be ready to tantalize your guests.
A Good Mixer Is Great to Have!
You can use a hand mixer at the higher speed but nothing beats a good stand mixer.
