25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Forget 'Em Cookies

Here we are, day one of the cookie baking challenge.  The challenge part would be eating the cookies without gaining an ounce of fat.

These cookies are an old favorite of mine-this is a recipe my mom has made since I was small.

Delightful bites of airy white-only five ingredients (six if you count the irresistible red sparkly decor) and then you...forget about them.  So easy!

Forget 'Em Cookies

2 egg whites
dash of salt
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 oz. chocolate chips
festive toppings if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat egg whites until foamy; add dash of salt.  Gradually begin adding sugar (1 tablespoon at a time).  Beat until mix becomes stiff and peaks form.

[This is when a stand alone mixer and multitasking come in handy.]

Fold in vanilla and chocolate chips.

Spoon by rounded teaspoons onto foil-lined baking sheets.

Place in oven and immediately turn off the heat.  Do not open the oven door for at least eight hours.

8 hours! Holy moly, that's some patience to have!

They look very good though, I might have to try them...
