  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • chopped pecans (as many as you like)


  • Beat egg whites until they are real stiff.
  • Add the sugar into the egg whites.
  • Beat a little more and mix in pecans.
  • Take a brown paper grocery store bag (think Food Lion) and cut out a piece of it to fit on a cookie sheet. Lay it on top of a cookie sheet.
  • Drop your mix by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet (on top of the bag cutout).
  • Bake @ 250 degrees for 1 hour.


This recipe will make about 2 dozen cookies.
If you prefer no pecans, don't worry. This recipe will be fantastic with or without them.
