Pecan Puffs Recipe

I just had to share my mom's recipe for these drop cookies. The light-as-a-cloud taste is simply heavenly.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add brown sugar, beating until stiff peaks form, about 5-8 minutes. Fold in vanilla and pecans. Drop by well-rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 225° for 50-55 minutes or until firm to the touch. Store in airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.
