  • Whip two egg whites and 1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter until soft peaks form; 
  • Add 1/2 cup cane sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste and 1/4 teaspoon cardamom; whip 2-3 minutes until stiff peaks form;
  • Gently fold in chopped pecans, 3/4 cup chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup dried cherries; 
  • Drop 2” balls onto foil-lined cookie sheet;
  • Bake in preheated 350 F oven for 5 minutes; turn off heat and leave to finish overnight (or at least 8 hours). 
Makes about 26 cookies. Store for up to 3 days in the fridge, or freeze.
