WW Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies



POINTS® Value: 2
Servings: 12
Preparation Time: 8 min
Cooking Time: 120 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

These cookies are the perfect combination of vanilla and chocolate. If you prefer chewy meringues, make them the day before you plan to eat them.

Ingredients

  • 1 spray(s) cooking spray, flour-variety recommended
  • 1 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 large egg white(s)
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) mini chocolate chips, semi-sweet
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200ºF.
  • Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray and coat with a light dusting of flour; shake off excess flour and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form; gently fold in chocolate and vanilla.
  • Drop mixture by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart, making 24 cookies.
  • Bake until lightly golden and no longer sticky on the surface, about 1 hour. Turn oven off and let cookies sit in oven for 1 hour. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
Notes

You can make these cookies mini if you prefer. Just use heaping teaspoons of batter; not tablespoons.
I plan to make these cookies this weekend for my annual Christmas cookie exchange. I'll let you know how it goes!
