Orange Pecan Cookie Topping
Will top 3-4 dozen cookies.
  • 1 large egg and 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups pecans (lightly toasted, for best flavor)
  1. Finely chop the pecans (a food processor works best).
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the egg and egg whites until foamy. Add the sugar gradually, beating continuously until all sugar is added. Beat about 3 minutes, until the mixture lightens in color.
  3. Add the orange zest, vanilla, and salt and mix well.
  4. Stir in the pecans.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  6. Drop by small spoonfuls onto thin unbaked cookies and bake following the cookie recipe instructions.
