Forgotten cookies are called, well, forgotten cookies, because once placed in the oven, they’re left inside overnight. Neat idea, hey? For once, those among us with a short attention span won’t screw something up!
Forgotten, and soon to be gone, these delicious meringue dollops will always be in your heart, if not always on your tongue.
They’re ooey, gooey, amazing, and addicting. Ask my daughters, who wanted to eat the entire batch in a single day! I think we have an absolute winner on our hands. Now, let’s see what they do in your hands!
