  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites, vinegar and salt to soft peaks. Gradually add sugar while continuing to whip until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Fold in 1/3 of the crushed candy canes, reserving the rest. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls, one inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle remaining crushed candy canes over the top.
  3. Bake for 90 minutes in the preheated oven, or until dry. Cool on baking sheets.

Although these are AWEFUL if you misread the recipe (like I did the 1st time around) and use 1/8 CUP of vinegar vs. 1/8 TEASPOON... When following the recipe, they turn out great! I added 3 d...

This is an excellent recipe - very light cookies, perfect after a heavy meal. Especially with peppermint ice cream!

I am surprised how much I enjoy this cookie. It is really delicious. I didn't have any peppermint extract to add and I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough flavor... WRONG! My oven was...
