Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

Every spring my local museum would have a tea party. I’ve kind of outgrown that now, but I still think about these chocolate chip meringue cookies. Ever since I’ve started my blog one and a half years ago, I have been wanting to make meringue cookies. The issue was that the cookies always stuck to the pan because I didn’t have a silicone baking mat. Thanks to Amazon Prime two day shipping, I’ve learned to make my favorite cookie from my childhood just in time for the holidays.

Ingredients 

  • 5 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 12-ounce package mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °F. Lay a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet.
  2. In a clean bowl, add the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat this until it’s thick.
  3. Adding only about ¼ at a time, slowly add the sugar into this gradually. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  4. Carefully fold in the mini chocolate chips with a spatula.
  5. Using a spoon, drop little circles about the size of a quarter onto the mat.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, then turn off the oven. Allow the cookies to cool in the oven for 30 extra minutes.
