Snowflake Cookie Recipe

Since our first big snowstorm of the year is predicted to hit this weekend (maybe), I thought it would be fun to share my mom's Snowflake Cookie recipe! This light and crisp cookie is a lot different from other "cookies" you might be used to baking. I think you will be pleasantly surprised! But be careful...they are addicting!

So while your at the store stocking up on bread and water...

You'll Need:
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chocolate chips
Pinch of salt

How you'll do it:
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Beat egg whites adding vanilla and salt. Continue beating until fairly firm. Add sugar gradually, beating until very stiff.
3. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
4. Drop from spoon onto a cookie sheet covered with greased aluminum foil.
5. Put in oven and turn off heat immediately. Leave in oven several hours until oven cools completely.
6. Enjoy!
