Sounds a little dirty [it does contain nuts], but trust me - it's sweet!
Here's a speedy cooky recipe [yep, that's one of those quirky 50s spellings] from Better Homes & Garden's Snacks and Refreshments cook book (c)'63 that will put a wink in your Wednesday:
[pinkies up, people!]
1 egg white
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
Beat egg white with salt until soft peaks form. Add brown sugar in two additions, beating lightly after each. (Mixture will be much thinner than for meringue.) Stir in nuts and drop, 2 inches apart, from a teaspoon onto a greased cooky sheet [told you]. Bake in very slow oven (250) about 30 minutes. Remove from cooky sheet immediately. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
See? This recipe is so speedy, that it quickly frees up some time for you to touch up your makeup, clasp your pearls and vacuum your home - whew!
