The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Valentine Hearts

~~I saw this idea on Morgan's blog: One More Moore. You can click here to see her adorable cookies and to read her recipe which is slightly different than mine. While you're there you should check out the rest of her cute blog.
~~Our family loves these easy egg-white cookies which we call "Forgotten Cookies." So when I saw Morgan's idea of using a pastry bag with a star shaped tip to make heart shapes I thought, "How fun! I have to try that." I went about making the cookies like I always do and without even thinking I added chocolate chips. (Like I always do.) Only when I was putting the meringue into the pastry bag did I suddenly realize that I'd made a mistake. How on earth did I expect chocolate chips to come out of the tip of a pastry bag, lol?! Duh. So I ended up taking the tip completely off and just using the open end to make hearts. Because of that, mine didn't turn out nearly as cute but I learned my lesson. I plan to try this again next week, without the chocolate chips!
Here's my family's recipe for forgotten cookies but next time I think I'll try Morgan's recipe to see if they come out differently:

♥~Forgotten Cookies~♥

~2 egg whites
~2/3 Cup sugar
~1 tsp. Vanilla

1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
3.Put 2 egg whites in a mixing bowl. (This works best with a stand mixer.) Beat until frothy.
4.Add sugar and vanilla. Beat on high until thick. (Several minutes.)
5.Drop by mounds on cookie sheet.
6.Place in oven. Turn off oven. Do Not Open oven for several hours or overnight.

Enjoy!!

Hi Kasie

They look perfect. Yummo.

We are doing lots of creative activities to do with hearts this week, so I think we might just give these a go.

Lots of love and hugs
