Forgotten Cookies

Otherwise known as meringues.  Popped into the hot oven just after it's turned off and then "forgotten" while the oven cools. 

I always have a few egg whites in my freezer from pasta making or pouring custard.  I used to use them solely for cheater Italian meringue, but I don't make cakes often so I built up a little store of odd egg whites.  Now I have options!

Is there anything tricky about freezing egg whites? I have never thought there was anything I could do with the leftover whites or yolks unless I used them right away.

My mom makes these at Christmas as a Christmas cookie. I think she calls them Forget-me-nots. They were one of my very favorite Christmas cookies growing up:-).

DB, nope. Just put whites or yolks in containers and put them in the freezer. I thaw them on the counter before using.

Another idea: Rebecca just stashes her extra egg parts in the fridge and puts them in with breakfast fried eggs.

I so rarely separate eggs... I wonder why? But, I do love meringues.
