Since it's possible you might end up with an excess of egg whites at some point in your life, I wanted to share the chocolate meringue cookie recipe with you. They are scrumpdillyicious!
CHOCOLATE MERINGUE COOKIES
3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup white sugar
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300° F (150° C).
Combine egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla.
Beat until the whites form soft peaks.
Slowly add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form, and mixture becomes glossy.
Fold in cocoa and chocolate chips.
Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls on to a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Now I'm off to find cremor tártaro or crema de tártar so I can make some of that chocolatey goodness myself.
