Recipe for Mother's Forgotten Cookies
S. Perreault


2 egg whites, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips or 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
4 drops mint extract (about 1/4 teaspoon)
1 to 2 drops of green food coloring (optional)


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Using an electric hand or stand mixer, beat egg whites until stiff, gradually adding sugar. Fold in chocolate chips, mint extract, and food coloring (optional).

Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, using an upward twist of the spoon to form peaks. Place in preheated oven and turn oven off immediately. Leave in oven with door closed overnight.

In the morning, remove cookies from oven and store in an air-tight container!


Makes about 3 dozen small cookies
