Travis House Cookies - Colonial Williamsburg

Chewy, butterscotch meringue cookies made famous by The Travis House when it was a restaurant in the 1940s, and it was then situated on the Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg. The Travis House was later physically moved to its original site on France Street.


Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a large baking sheet. Beat the egg white until stiff peaks form. Gradually add brown sugar, continuing to beat. Mix in salt and flour. Stir in pecans. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. Cool slightly and remove from pan. Makes about 24 cookies.

I've made these cookies and they are great!
