Meringue Cookies

Meringue Cookies

With their crisp shell and slightly chewy interior, meringue cookies are melt-in-your-mouth magic. Sometimes called “Forgotten Cookies,” some versions of the recipe (the versions that give you ultra crisp meringues) say to leave them in the oven for hours after they’re done baking. This allows the cookies to cool dry and slow (and crisp!), but in this version, the meringues hold on to a slightly chewy center by baking quickly and cooling on wire racks out in the open, where they will certainly NOT be forgotten!

Meringue Cookies

Made almost entirely of egg whites and sugar, meringue cookies are light as a feather. We’ve added chocolate chips to our meringues, but you can add crushed peppermint candies for a fun holiday twist. With their marshmallow-y, snowy appearance, meringue cookies are a popular Christmas season dessert addition.
