Evolving Mommy’s Virtual Holiday Cookie Exchange
Growing up I ate a lot of cookies. I have had many favorites. Many. Growing up my grandma’s forgotten kisses were my favorite. I am not sure if it was the taste the texture or the whimsical white fluffiness of her fluffy white meringue cookies. Either way they are still some of my favorite cookies.
Grandma’s version of these cookies usually have either chocolate chips or crushed candy canes in them. I like both versions but decided to put a little bit of my own spin on this recipe.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease cookie sheets.
Beat together eggs and salt until mixture becomes foamy. Adding one tablespoon at a time beat sugar into egg mixture. Beat for 8-10 minutes or until mixtures forms stiff peaks.
Use two teaspoons to form teaspoon sized amounts of meringue mixture into balls and drop onto greased cookie sheet. Cookies can be placed about an inch apart.
Place cookie sheets in hot oven, close the door and turn off the oven immediately. Leave in oven for 5 hours without opening the oven door. Cookies can also stay in the oven overnight.
