Christmas Cookies – Part 5 of 5: Grandmother’s Cookies


The most important cookies for us to make this year were my Grandmother’s Forgotten cookies.  She made these cookies for us every Christmas.  Grandmother passed away this year on December 5 at age 89.  It is hard to grasp the reality that she won’t be at Christmas this year, or birthday celebrations next year, or see our new house, etc.  She was a strong woman who defied the odds of modern medicine for so many years, and will be missed.  Memories are a wonderful thing, and will definitely be thinking of her every year when my mom and I make these.  Thanks to my mom for making this batch this year.

Grandmother’s Forgotten Cookies
2 egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate bits
1 cup nuts, broken

Beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar by spoonful by spoonful -slowly – and beat until stiff. Add chocolate bits and nuts. Have oven heated to 350 degrees F. Put cookies on a foil-lined (shiny side down) cookie sheet – spooned out by the tablespoon. Put cookies in the oven and turn oven off. Leave 5 hours.


Me, Grant, Grandmother and Danny
