The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
With the holidays coming up, it's never too early to start thinking about what cookies you will bake this holiday season. Nothing says "welcome" like a platter of home-made cookies, and the Mueller family was blessed with a mother who knew how to bake a cookie! This week we will feature very easy Egg White Cookies...
Lois Elaine's Egg White Cookies:
2 egg whites, beaten very stiff
1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. flour
1 c. chopped nuts
1 c. chopped dates
Add the ingredients to the egg whites and mix well. Let stand 5 minutes. Drop by small teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
