fogotten cookie

Every Christmas the women in my family always made what they called “Forgotten Cookies,” a super simple, texture-rich crumbly cookie you leave in the oven overnight to bake.

You can add pecans, walnuts, or any other kind of nut you have on hand. You can also try them with butterscotch or white chocolate chips!

Here’s What You Need:

  • 2 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Here’s How to Make Them:

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue beating until they hold stiff peaks. Add salt and vanilla. Stir well. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Cover cookie sheet with foil and grease with butter or margarine. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the foil. Put in oven then turn the oven off. Leave overnight in oven with door closed.
