Forgotten Dream Cookies
These are my favorite cookies. They were a recipe of my grandma's that I remember helping my mom make as a child.
Here's the recipe:
2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
6 oz. chocolate chips (I use a bit more)
With beater, beat egg whites until foamy. Add salt and cream of tarter. Beat until whites form stiff peaks. (make sure to really beat them..don't rush this phase) Add sugar gradually while beating. Beat in vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Put in preheated 350 degree oven. Turn oven OFF and leave them in there for at least 3 hours or overnight.
They should be crunchy and airy. If they are too sticky or gooey, then you may not have beat the whites long enough.
