Forgotten Cookies




I promise I won't forget these cookies! They're meringue cookies and are fabulous. They're called "forgotten," I think, because you put them in a 350 degree oven and then turn off the oven and forget about them for 8 hours. They dry out and get all crispy yummy.

TC's boss is having a party tomorrow so this is what we're taking. I'm going to have to make another batch tomorrow morning because I don't think this will be enough. We'll see how the morning goes. And in my psycho* cookbook, the next page after this recipe has the same basic recipe but you actually bake them at 200 degrees for some time. That might be quicker than the 8 hour deal since I won't have over night for them to dry out.

*I have a cookbook that was put out by the psychiatrists' wives from where I grew up. My sister dubbed it the psycho cookbook.

So how do you prepare a psycho? Baked? Fried? Pickled? Grilled? Sick minds want to know.

Am I missing the recipe somewhere obvious? Those look fabulous, light and tasty and I'm in the mood for baking. Could I get it? Or is it a standard meringue recipe? I hadn't heard of one called "forgotten"
