"This meringue cookie sets up overnight. I bake lots of cookies and then end my day by mixing up a batch of these kisses and turning out the light!!" — Rosemarie Magee

cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
red food coloring
I reduced the sugar to 1 cup, used 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract instead of vanilla, and tinted 1/2 the batter green and 1/2 pink. The batter was very grainy before I put them in the oven all night, but they were perfect when done. Good recipe!
Mine didn't turn out the best. I felt like I had to mix them FOREVER, and then they completely flattened out. They taste pretty good, but are completely flat, crumbly, and grainy.
These are like candy. A little too sweet, but the consistency came out perfect. Takes too much time to add the sugar by teaspoonful. Recommend you have a helper to spoon teaspoons of sugar in as you are beating it.
thank you for this cookie recipe. i been looking for it for years. one onf the cookies that we lost when my grandmother died. its nice to have alittle bit of memaws cookies at every christmas now. keeps her remory alive.
thank you so much for this recipe, my mom-in-law used to make these when my hubby was little, but couldn't remember the recipe. now i can share these with him and our 3 boys, what a great trip down christmas memory lane for my hubby, and a new "old" recipe for my boys!!
i love this recipe! i lost my original so i am so glad it is still here! first of all i read the current reviews and i have to diagree, if you cooki any kind of meringue while it is humid outside these will not turn out! the texture is a little crisp outside with a wonderful creamy almost soft marshmallow inside i use ghiradelli milk chocolate chips in mine !
Easy and turn out great. Old family favorite.
These are great! This is the best meringue kiss recipe I have ever used. I changed it up a bit and instead of the vanilla I used mint extract and they came out great. :o)
