Overlooked COOKIES

These little treats – depicted by one companion as suggesting a flavor like a treat inside a treat – are actually a blend between a meringue and a treat. Thus they’ve gotten known at home, where they’re colossally mainstream, as Merookies, and are ideal with some espresso after supper. They are designated “overlooked” as, much the same as the ‘Overlooked Pudding’ in Nigella Express, they are not prepared, yet put in a hot stove, which you quickly turn off, leaving the treats to heat in the blurring lingering heat for the time being. I think that its very simple really to overlook them, and consistently put a post-it sticker on the broiler to remind me they’re in there, so I don’t consume them to an ash by preheating the stove to cook something different in it the following day.


2 enormous unfenced egg whites, at room temperature

squeeze fine ocean salt

100g/3½oz caster sugar

1 tsp cornflour

1 tsp juice vinegar or white wine vinegar

¼ tsp ground cardamom

75g/2½oz scaled down dull chocolate chips

75g/2½oz pistachios, finely slashed


1 Preheat the broiler to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 and line an enormous heating plate with preparing paper. Whisk together the egg whites and salt in an oil free bowl, until you have delicate pinnacles. Race in the sugar a little at an at once and shining.

2 By hand, overlap in the cornflour, vinegar and cardamom, at that point include the chocolate chips and the vast majority of the pistachios and delicately crease these in as well.

3With a spoon, drop mounded masses of the blend, 4–5cm/2in in breadth, onto the readied plate. Sprinkle with the rest of the pistachios.

4 Put the treats into the broiler, stopped the entryway and turn the stove right away. Let the treats sit in the killed stove short-term.
