These cookies are the perfect combination of vanilla and chocolate. If you prefer chewy meringues, make them the day before you plan to eat them.

Ingredients

  • 1 spray cooking spray, flour-variety recommended

  • 1 tsp all-purpose flour

  • 4 large egg white(s)

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1⁄2 cup mini chocolate chips, semi-sweet

  • 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 F. 

  2. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray and coat with a light dusting of flour; shake off excess flour and set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form; gently fold in chocolate and vanilla.

  4. Drop mixture by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart, making 24 cookies.

  5. Bake until lightly golden and no longer sticky on the surface, about 1 hour. Turn oven off and let cookies sit in oven for 1 hour. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
