I am so happy to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. I wrote a cookbook for my family to preserve several generations of our favorite family recipes. I usually make the cookies at night and wake up to this great fragrance throughout the house. You mix them up, pop in the oven, turn off the oven and leave them until morning. Enjoy.
3 egg whites
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover 2 cookie sheets with aluminum foil.
Beat egg whites until very frothy. Add cream of tartar and salt. Beat until very stiff.
Add sugar slowly by teaspoonfuls. Beat until glossy.
Fold in vanilla and chocolate chips. (chopped nuts, if desired)
Drop by spoonfuls onto foil covered baking sheets. Place in the oven and TURN OFF HEAT. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR TO PEEK.
Next day-peel away foil and place in an airtight container.

When handsome town sheriff Derrick Shelton meets Angelique Guillory and her young daughter at the Garrett ranch, he is immediately drawn to the woman who seems to desperately need a true family Christmas. Determined to erase the shadows from her eyes, he decides to give her the best holiday she’s ever had.
Angelique Guillory is a woman with a past, haunted by violence and searching for the family she never knew. When she and her little daughter find their way to the Garrett family and meet Derrick, she hopes to have finally found a safe haven.
But Angelique is still looking over her shoulder. Despite her doubts, with a little Christmas magic and the warmth of the Garretts, Angelique may find more love and acceptance than she ever thought possible.
