...Nightie Nights.

I realize it's the New Year,time for all those healthy resolutions, and the last thing any of us need right now is another sweet holiday treat... but I just couldn't resist sharing my favorite new cookie...Nightie Nights. After all, how bad can a bit of egg white, chocolate and nuts be. There is plenty of time later for carrot sticks and the like! Thinking ahead these could be great Valentines gifts, a wonderful Easter treat, or just something simple with an afternoon cup of Earl Grey. They are also the absolute simplest cookie to make.

2 egg whites
2/3 c. white sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup good quality chocolate bits

Set oven to 350 degrees. With wire whip or beater, ship egg whites until foamy. Than adding sugar a little at a time, beat until stiff. Fold in vanilla, chocolate bits and nuts.
Line a large ungreased cookie sheet with aluminum foil. DO NOT GREASE. Place spoonfuls of cookie batter on foil fairly close together (they will not grow).
Place in oven on 2nd rack from top and than shut oven off. DO NOT PEAK
Leave in overnight. In morning remove from oven. Store in air tight container.

Enjoy, and oh... "Nightie Night"!!
