Forgotten chocolate chip meringue cookies

Forgotten chocolate chip meringue cookies

These are great to make during the holiday season at the end of a busy baking day when the oven is still hot. Can be "forgotten" overnight.

  • Yield: 3 servings ( Serving Size: dozen )


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cream of tartar
  • 2/3 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract or peppermint
  • 1 cup(s) mini chocolate chip morsels
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped nuts optional


1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until thick and foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until mixture holds stiff, shiny peaks.

2. With a spatula, gently stir in almond extract and chopped chocolate. Spoon 1/2-tablespoon portions into 1-inch-wide mounds (or with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain or star tip, pipe 1-inch-wide mounds) about 1 inch apart onto cooking parchment - lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

3. Bake meringues in a 275° regular or convection oven until dry and firm to touch on the outside and almost dry inside (break one open to test), 30 to 35 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then slide a spatula underneath meringues and transfer to racks to cool completely.
