These are so easy to make, and you can vary the recipe so many different ways... Ingredients: 2 Egg Whites dash salt 1 C. Chocolate Mini Morsels 2/3 C. Sugar 1 Tsp. Vanilla 1 C. Chopped Nuts Preheat oven to 350 (Very important to preheat the oven!) Beat the egg whites stiff, slowly add sugar, salt, & vanilla .Fold in chocolate morsels and nuts. Lay sheets of foil on cookie sheets. Drop mixture by teaspoon onto foil. You can put them fairly close togethe. Place pans in the oven, and immediately turn off heat. Leave in oven overnight and do not open oven till morning. Peel cookies off foil and store in airtight container. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add food coloring, butterscotch chips, anything you want. These will melt in your mouth! *One important thing to remember...this is like meringue...try to pick a day to make them when the humidity is low and they will set up better. Hope you enjoy this!

MMMM these sound so good. I love to do baking, and haven't tried these yet. I'm gonna go to the grocery store, and get the ingredients this weekend (once I feel better, I'm a little sick today) and give these a try, my kids will absolutely devour them. Thanks for the recipe.

These are the best cookies. I love them . Iused to have a litle retired Chef bring me these every christmas and I never had the recipe until this year. I made some for christmas. My didn't turn out to good though... The egg yolks didn't want to get stiff. I baked anyways and left overnight. They just were flatter than normal. and tasted great. My granson loved then too... I am going to copy your recipe and compare to mine. Thanks ...

i've had that happen, too...it's usually best to let the eggs come to room temp by the way, should have put that in there too...they are wonderful, though, aren't they?
