Maureen has his favourite cookie recipe:
My ‘go to’ recipe when I have to take something is Forgotten cookies.
Basically tiny meringues
Beat 2 egg whites and pinch salt until foamy.
Gradually add half a cup castor sugar.
1 tsp vanilla
Then whatever eg chopped almonds, chopped dark chocolate etc.
But for Christmas make one lot add red food colouring and strawberry flavour and swirl, one lot green likewise, lime or lemon flavour. But not vanilla.
Sprinkle silver or gold tiny balls or other sprinkles.
Put on foil, teaspoon sizes.
Makes about 30 per lot.
Pop in the oven and turn it off.
Leave overnight or for several hours.
