Walnut Spice Kisses
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas
These Walnut Spice Kisses are delicious, light, have only the healthy fat from the walnuts, and don't even use flour!
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
Walnut halves or quarters for decorations
Beat the egg whites until stiff.
Mix the sugar and spices, and gradually beat into the egg whites. (If you add too much at a time, you lose the stiffness.)
Gently fold in chopped walnuts.
Drop from a teaspoon onto a well greased cookie sheet. Top with walnut halves (or quarters).
Bake at 250 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

As early as 1822, the postmaster in Washington, D.C. was worried by the amount of extra mail at Christmas time. His preferred solution to the problem was to limit by law the number of cards a person could send. Even though commercial cards were not available at that time, people were already sending so many home-made cards that sixteen extra postmen had to be hired in the city.
