Forgotten Cookies

2 egg whites, at room temperature
pinch salt
120g (1/2 cup) castor sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
120g (3/4 cup) roughly chopped almonds
150g (3/4 cup) chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks

Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Beat egg whites and salt until foamy.

Step 2 Gradually add sugar and continue beating until they hold stiff peaks and make a glossy, stiff meringue. Add vanilla, almonds and chocolate chips.

Step 3 Cover baking tray with baking paper. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on the paper. Put in the oven, then turn oven off. Leave overnight in oven (or for at least 3 hours, until oven is cold) with the door closed.

Talking about forgotten cookies - can someone help please. My mum used to make something she called 'cinnamon buns' - that was her name for them - they were not a bun tho - a cookie (they looked similar to an afghan - I'm sure she must have put cocoa in?).They were of a soft texture - not crunchy. Also I would really like a recipe for 'cornflake cookies'.
