I have been thoroughly spoilt this week as Chris came armed not only with a beautiful gift of a collectible Narcissus cyclaminius Wilma (hope that I got the name right) but these awesome cookies and I tell you that they sound like my style of baking!!! I quote These can be eaten on their own but are nicer with whipped cream and fruit. They will store for up to 10 days in an air tight container so are excellent for afternoon tea or dessert that can be made ahead of time.
2 egg whites pinch of salt 120g Castor sugar 1 Tsp Vanilla Essence 120g Chopped Almonds 150g Dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180 C
Beat egg whites with salt until foamy Gradually add sugar sugar and continue beating until you have a glossy stiff meringue add vanilla, almond and chocolate chips and fold togather.
Drop spoonfuls on a tray covered with baking paper Put in oven and turn oven off and leave there for a minimum of three hours with door closed LOL forget about for a while.
