"This Christmas cookie recipe is my grandmother's and is a favorite in our family. The cookies are delicious with the chocolate chips, candy cane and nuts in them. They make wonderful gifts during the holidays! Baking them on parchment paper makes cleanup so much easier."

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat egg whites in a clean glass or metal bowl until foamy. Add salt and cream of tartar, and continue beating until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while continuing to beat to stiff peaks. When the meringue is stiff remove from the mixer. Stir in vanilla and fold in candy canes, chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. If you can't bake all of the cookies at once, store the extra in the refrigerator until the other ones are done.
  3. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until dry enough to easily peel off of the cookie sheet. Cool cookies then store in an airtight tin.

I made changes OF COURSE. I used the basic meringue recipe but used lemon extract instead of vanilla and lemon zest instead of candycanes/ choco chips. I added a touch of yellow food coloring an...

Oh my goodness these are yummy! I followed the recipe to a "T" except for walnuts bc I didnt have any. I have only had meringue cookies once or twice growing up and I must say these are the bes...

Nummy! I've already been asked for the recipe by someone else. I skipped the walnuts. My cooking time was closer to 35 minutes rather than 40.

Made this today...very, very good and perfect for the holidays! Didn't change a thing and had no problems.

These are delish! Someone made these for a Christmas party I went to and were a huge hit! Such an interesting texture and very different. Egg whites being at room temp and making sure no yolk...

These are now my favorite holiday cookies. It took longer to bake as I wanted to make sure the meringue dried -- baked about 50 minutes. The secret is room temp eggs!
