Very easy to make and fun to eat! I plan on making these again, but with some variations: almond extract instead of peppermint, or mini chocolate chips mixed with the meringue (or sprinkled mini chips on top of the unbaked cookie). Another possible variation: a well-drained maraschino cherry (without stem) in the center instead of the chocolate kiss, and omitting the peppermint extract. While my young daughter likes to eat these cookies, I still plan on making them by myself (raw egg whites).
I didn't give this recipe 5 Overall stars because it seems to need something, mainly presentation-wise. I think some finely shaved chocolate or jimmies sprinkled on the unbaked meringue would "dress up" the cookie a bit.
Tips on making the cookie: avoid air-pockets between the meringue and the kiss, and use two baking sheets -- you can fit the whole recipe on both sheets and get the whole batch in the oven at one time.
