After I made the Kahlua Lava Cake, I had egg whites leftover.
My mom has made these cookies since I was tiny - they are a Christmas cookie staple. There are no Christmas rules in my house; these cookies are made all year.
Only this time, I made a little change. Remember when I accidentally ordered thirteen boxes of Girl Scout cookies? Instead of the usual chocolate chips, I chopped of Samoa Cookies.
Meringue cookies with bits of chocolate and coconut goodness.
I'm sticking with the normal name: Forget 'Em Cookies (because it's catchy and it's the very thing that make them so appealing).
Forget 'Em Cookies
3 egg whites
dash of salt
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
heaping cup of chopped girl scout cookies (any would work; I used about 12)/ 1 c. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line two pans with aluminum foil.
Beat egg whites until foamy. Add dash of salt. Begin adding sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beat on high until stiff peaks form. Fold in the vanilla and the chocolate chips or cookies.
Drop by teaspoon onto prepared sheets.
Place in the oven and immediately turn the oven off.
Do not open the door for at least eight hours (this is easiest done overnight). Carefully remove from the pan.
