My favorite cookies are sugar cookies. But these ones are different then what most people call sugar cookies. They are so easy to make. Just take 3 egg whites and 9 tablespoons of sugar and beat them till fluffy. Spoon it onto a cookie sheet and bake on 150 degrees for about two and a half hours to three hours. Take them out when they are dry. To make a variation you can either put a walnut on the top of them before putting them in the oven. Or a cherry, or after they are baked brush a little (very little) bit of oil on the tops of them and dip into colorful baking candy.
