Today I am making a recipe blindly...and by that I mean that I have never tasted this recipe or even seen the results, it was passed on to me by my Mother-in-law a few years back when she was cleaning out her recipes (someone had made them at a party she had been to). I had to wonder if a recipe she cleaned out of her recipe box was worth the effort, but curiosity got the best of me (and the leftover eggwhites from the lemon icebox pie). I have to say I was pleased with the results.
These are called Forgotten Cookies, but really they're more like a candy to me, definitely in the divinity family, and very easy and yummy!
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Beat 2 egg whites with 2/3 cup granulated sugar on high speed until stiff peaks form (about 10 minutes).
Stir in 1 cup mini chocolate chips and 1 cup pecans.
Drop by spoonful onto foil covered cookie sheet.
Place in the oven, turn oven OFF. Set timer for 2 hours.
These come out slightly crunchy on the outside but light and airy on the inside - the chocolate and pecans totally make this "cookie." This recipe made 30 cookies for me using a medium sized scoop - don't ask how many are left...I had to test them, you know - quality control.
