Ingredients

  • 2
    egg whites
  • 1 pinch
    scant pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch
    cream of tartar
  • 2/3 c
    sugar
  • 6 oz
    mini-sized chocolate chips
  • 1
    drop of peppermint oil

How to Make FORGOTTEN COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Let it heat up while you're mixing the ingredients.
    Grease a cookie sheet. Set aside.
  2. Beat together the egg whites, salt, & cream of tartar 'til fluffy and peaks stand up.
  3. Add sugar very gradually.
  4. Beat until VERY STIFF.
  5. Gently fold in the mini-chocolate-chips and the peppermint oil.
  6. Drop by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet.
  7. Place into your pre-heated oven, and TURN THE OVEN OFF. Leave the cookies in the oven overnight.
  8. Makes about 2-1/2 dozen. These freeze well after they're thoroughly cooled.
  9. Notes: you can use other flavored oils, too. I have also substitued almond extract, but remember you're going from one DROP of oil, to about 1/8 TEASPOON of extract, so don't overdo the extract or you'll make the mixture too runny and they won't turn out right.
    I have also used mini mint-flavored chips.
