semisweet chocolate chips
Someone please help me out. I followed the recipe and the directions exactly and in the morning the cookies were still soft. Plus they stuck to the foil paper. Maybe I should have greased it? Should I have kept the cookies in the turned on oven for a few minutes before I turned the oven off? What I did in the morning is turn the oven back on for a few minutes on low and the cookies were ready soon after that. They came out delicious but I wish I didn't have to do that extra step. What did I do wrong?
Also, I think chocolate chips are extra, I just added chopped almonds and a little bit of sugar, and the taste was just right.
Thank you for the recipe. Please give me more direction for I want to try this again.
Waste of calories! Followed instructions and they came out like ...thanks for the disappointment!
Great recipe, easy to follow. I was raised on it without the chocolate chips or nuts...just as a meringue.
For the reviewer who had to turn her oven back on...is your oven gas? If so, that's your problem. Electric oven coils retain heat for awhile after you've turned them off, while gas ovens start cooling almost immediately. If it is a gas oven, I'd preheat the oven, then when you put the cookies in, drop the temp to the lowest possible...they'll be ready in less than a few hours, dependant on your oven.
They came out literally, just like the picture! I doubled the recipe in my 5 quart kitchen aid mixer just fine. I was baking them for a breast cancer awareness fundraiser so I used red food coloring in the final mixing stages to make the meringue pink before folding in the mini semi-sweet chips and chopped peanuts and they took to a nice pink color.
They also didn't spread when baking so I could pack the parchment lined cookies sheets closely with cookies and bake 2 batches simultaneously! The hardest part of the recipe is not opening the oven before time is up!
I have made a version of this for years. For the person who it did not work out right for her is my suggestion...First I grease and flour the cookie sheet(they will come right off@) When you put them in the oven count to 30 then turn off the oven and let stand over night. Sometime I get sidetracked cleaning something and they end up in there for a few minutes. Add food coloring red and green for Christmas.
When making the meringue, I recommend adding about 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar and adding in the sugar gradually until it dissolves in the egg white mixture. Instead of using chocolate chips, I put a Hershey's kiss chocolate in the center of each one. These are light and fluffy cookies that everyone will like!
This is one of my favorite holiday recipies. However, I make my cookies with milk chocolate chips and pecans. Anytime I make these cookies I get multiple requests for the recipie.
I've made these cookies before. I like to experiment with meringue cookies; I've gotten away with a dried cranberry and almond meringue before! I also alwas add food coloring, just to make them look more appetizing. (For example, red and green for Christmas). I also use colors when I make one batch with nuts and one without. One this about this cookie, though; I've had several people say "Mine didn't come out that good!" The BIGGEST keys are the parts of this recipe that mention ROOM TEMPERATURE and STIFF PEAKS. Too many people make it cold and go, like, "Oh! This is close enough." Or make soft peaks and say the same thing.
