The recipe makes about two dozen cookies, is relatively low-fat, and is so delicious that Greg, who normally does not like sweets, ate so many I thought he was going to be sick! Before he could devour them all, however, I did send over a plate of these delicious little treats to my neighbour.
"Meringes A la Pez"
2 egg whites at room temperature
1/8 tsp creme of tartar
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Beat egg whites in Mixer until foamy. Add creme of tartar and salt. Keep beating until peaks form. Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Add vanilla. When glossy and stiff, stop and fold in chocolate chips. Drop tablespoons on to cookie sheet (covered with parchment paper so they don't stick) 1 inch apart. (This is where I improvised and added the extra chip to the top of each cookie)
Bake at 250 degrees F x 40 minutes. Cool completely.
