Today is National Cookie Day! Celebrate by baking some cookies at home. (or you can cheat and pick up a package of Oreos :-p )
5 tablespoons powdered sugar
3 egg whites
2 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Beat the egg whites in a bowl.
Add the powdered sugar to the stiffly beaten egg whites.
Then add two well-beaten yolks and the vanilla extract.
Sift the flour twice with the salt then fold into mixture.
Line a pan with paper but do not grease it.
Press the batter through a pastry bag onto it, forming strips four inches long and one inch wide.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and bake in a 350 degrees F oven for ten minutes.
