Meringue cookies with crunchy shells and soft centers and loaded with chocolate chips and pecans. They are so named because you practically forget about them once you pop them in the oven. Here is an easy dessert recipe for Forgotten Cookies.
2 large egg whites
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
In a bowl, beat egg whites using an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar and beat to stiff peaks. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans.
Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Place in the pre-heated oven and immediately turn off heat; leave undisturbed overnight or at least for 4 hours.
Makes 1 dozen cookies. Store Forgotten Cookies in an air-tight container.
