I want to start by saying these were delicious!! Now that I've said that, I'm often asked "do you ever make things that don't come out?' The answer is yes I do. I just don't post those recipes here to share. These particular cookies did not come out looking like a meringue cookie as I didn't beat the egg whites long enough, however they worked and they were delicious!!
8 egg whites (allow to come to room temperature)
2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
12 ounces chocolate chips
Beat the egg whites until very stiff. Mix together the cream or tartar, salt and sugar. Slowly add in the sugar mixture until absorbed into the egg whites. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonful onto a baking sheet. Do not grease the cookie sheet. Use parchment paper or a silicone sheet. As you can see, mine were not stiff enough but I baked them anyway.
Bake at 235 degrees about 90 minutes. They should be a light color. Mine look like regular cookies but they definitely tasted great!!
