Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

Dish: Cookies & Bars
Dish Type: Other
Cooking Method: Baked
Difficulty: 5 / 10
Servings: 18
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours

  • 2 - egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon - salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon - cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon - vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup - sugar
  • 1 cup - chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

2) Place wax paper on a cookie sheet and set aside.

3) Beat, with an electric mixer, egg whites until foamy.

4) Add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract. Beat until soft peaks form.

5) Add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, until there are glossy, stiff peaks.

6) Fold in chocolate chips.

7) Bake for 1 1/2 hours-2 hours, or until firm.


These are an excellent alternative to the regular chocolate chip cookies.

I made these with butterscotch chips, was out of choc chips. I am gonna to try these with cherry chips and cherry extract also. I think you could really switch up flavors a number of ways. One tip--use a small bowl when mixing.
