Cookies While You Sleep
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a chilled bowl, with chilled beaters, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar and salt, and beat until stiff. Fold in chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonful onto a foil-lined cookie sheet. Put the cookies into the hot oven, close the door immediately and turn off the oven. Leave in the oven overnight or 6 to 8 hours minimum.
Makes 3 dozen.
