Noni's Forgotten Cookies
Alison Couture, LaCucina Sweets
2 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
Chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
In the meantime, cover a cookie sheet with foil.
Once stiff peaks have formed, turn off mixer and clean beaters.
Gently fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonful on to foil lined pan.
Place pan in oven and turn off the heat. Leave pan in oven overnight or until the oven is cool.
Store in a dry, airtight container.
You can make the meringues with or without chocolate chips. You can also decorate with decorating sugar before placing in the oven. Instead of using a teaspoon, you can use cake decorating bags and tips. If using a cake decorating bag and tip, it can be difficult to get the chocolate chips out without plugging the tip. It is easier to sprinkle on top after piping shape.
