Merry Christmas everyone! These cookies have been a long standing tradition in the Stewart household at Christmas time. They are super easy to make and look great with candy canes sprinkled on top for some extra festive cheer.
These cookies are also great with chocolate chips. Conveniently, since they have no flour in them, they are also a gluten-free treat! I have never tried piping the meringue but if you are looking for a slightly prettier looking version, you could give that a whirl! I think next time I will.
2 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 oz chocolate chips (optional – we didn’t use this time)
Preheat oven to 350. Beat egg whites until stiff. Add sugar gradually. Beat at high speed for 5 minutes. Fold in vanilla and chips (if using). Drop from teaspoon onto foil lined cookie sheet. Put in oven and turn off heat. Leave overnight or at least 8 hours. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
Cheers and Merry Christmas from Bake with Us!
