Well I did not stick to my plan of only making 5 Christmas cookie treats.... I do have a good excuse. The store bought Dulce de leche I had in the cupboard and it needed to be used up and I had egg whites left over from a recipe. Couldn't be wasteful could I? Found the Dulce De Leche recipe on line at Taste and Tell blog.
Next I had left over candied cherries to combine with the egg whites.
These are called Forgotten Cookies.
2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Drop spoonfuls onto parchment paper. Turn off heat at once and leave for 2 hours or even overnight, thus the name" forgotten" .
