I came up with these easy cookies back in 2000. They have became a holiday staple at our house. My husband loves these because he rational is the cookies are way to fragile to give out in the goodie bags so he can eat all of them himself. ***which by the way this year - he is well on his way to polishing them off...very quickly***
This cookies have a great crispy shell - that leads your mouth on an adventure...one you break the shell open the cookie "poofs" - hence the name and kind of crumbles into your mouth and all round. The sweet chocolate chips and bitter walnuts balance this delightful unique cookie.
I love these because I can use one bowl to whip them up at night and put the cookie pans in the oven and just forget about them - so all there is for clean up in the bowl, beaters, cookie scoop and measuring cup - and when the pans come out in the morning - all you do is peal them off of the foil - throw the foil away and put the clean pans away!
2 egg whites
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat egg whites to foamy soft peaks.
Gradually add sugar and beat approximately 7 to 10 minutes until thick and sticky.
Stir in vanilla, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
Drop by spoonfuls onto foil-lined baking sheets.
Place into oven and turn the oven off.
FORGET' EM til Morning! Wha...La.... Cookies are done!
I love to use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter on the foil lined baking sheets. The reason being is the batter is very sticky and the scoop works great and keep your fingers clean.
Make sure to store the cookies in an air tight container.
