Forgotten Cookies

Ashley's family calls meringues and fudge the "Forgotten Cookies" - you can leave them overnight and forget them (that is if any are left over!).  Not only did Ashley sent me her recipes she also set me straight about egg whites - room temp!


4 1/2 cup sugar
lg. can evaporated milk
1/4 lb butter
18oz. chocolate chips
7oz jar marshmallow cream
1 cup walnuts (or coconut, if you prefer)
2 tsp. vanilla

Bring sugar and milk to a rolling boil. Boil for 9 min. stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add butter, chips and marshmallow cream. Stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla and walnuts. Pour into 9x13" pan that is buttered well. Cool.

I am very intriguted with the marshmallow fluff!
Now, for meringues:

2 egg whites (brought to room temp - VERY important) - yep, that's what I've been doing wrong all along!
2/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat egg whites until dry and then add sugar gradually. Add salt and vanilla. Fold chips in by hand. Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets. TURN OFF OVEN when you put the cookies in. Leave in for at least two hours.

Be sure to check out other cookies and a lot more still to come.
