Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 2002

  • Yield: 30 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa, divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate minichips
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 250°.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper; secure with masking tape.

Place egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Combine sugar and 3 tablespoons cocoa, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add sugar mixture to egg white mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating at medium speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in minichips and vanilla.

Spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch round tip, or large zip-top plastic bag with 1 corner snipped to form 1/2-inch opening. Pipe 30 (2-inch-round) mounds 1/4 inch apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake at 250° for 1 1/2 hours.

Turn oven off; cool meringues in closed oven for 1 hour. Carefully remove meringues from paper. Using a fine sieve, dust meringues with 1 tablespoon cocoa.
