Meringue Cookies

November 25, 2010 at 10:02 am (Desserts, Holiday Favorites)

These are the best EVER.  My neighbor Dottie introduced these to us the first Christmas we lived in Tennessee.  Everytime I’ve brought them to a party, people have raved about them.  Like Ms. Dottie, I only make these for the Christmas season.

Approximately 20 cookies per batch


  • 2 egg whites (room temperature)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips


Preaheat oven 300 degrees.

Beat egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla until mixture forms a soft peak.  Gradually add sugar until stiff peaks.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Line cookie sheets with brown paper (I use brown paper bags).  Spoon batter onto lined cookie sheets.  Cook for 25 minutes, or until light brown.
