Quick and Easy Back to School Cookies

blog23It’s back to school time here. My kids have their first day back…tomorrow.

And one of my babies is going into high school! How did this happen?! Time has flown by and I didn’t believe any of those people who told me it would. The days are long and the years are short. :)

I’m planning on having a little first-day-of-school debriefing tomorrow. But I have to be subtle with it or else the children will shut up like clams! What RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]better way to gently find out information about their days than by providing them with a little milk and cookies?

Here are the cookies I’m making. These cookies aren’t just perfect for back to school, they’re actually wonderful before holidays…because you shut the oven off and leave the cookies in there for hours.

Easy Drop Cookies

2 egg whites, beaten
2/3 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients and drop by teaspoons on foil-covered baking sheet. Put cookies in the oven and turn the oven off. Let the cookies stay in overnight or for five hours.
