Ragged Robins
From Debbie

This cookie recipes comes from the 1941 Purity Cookbook. It was one of the first recipes my grandmother taught me to bake. Baking cookies was a favorite pastime with my grandmother. I bake cookies a lot just for the memories of her.

Ragged Robins

2 egg whites
1/4 tsp.vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 lb. dates (stoned & chopped)
1/2 cup glazed cherries
1 cup walnuts
1-3/4 cups corn flakes
1/2 cup white sugar

Beat egg whites until stiff, add vanilla and salt.  Combine the rest of ingredients and add to egg white mixture.  Drop from a spoon on to greased baking sheet.  Bake in a slow oven (325 deg. F.) for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.  As with anything with egg whites, just watch for over browning.
