So I had a cookie swap earlier last week, and for it I made meringues. I'm gonna post them Pioneer Woman style, with way too many pictures. The recipe is here.
You start by crushing the peppermints in a food processor. This is way better than using a hammer, which is what I used to do.
Then you put the eggs in the bowl with cream of tartar and salt, and you start mixing.
Eventually the eggs will get really fluffy and white as you add the sugar and then you will beat them until your hand hurts, and then you will add the chocolate chips.
Then you just scoop them out and put them on parchment paper.
When you make these, it is important to use only metal utensils. Plastic retains oil and any trace of fat will prevent the eggs from whipping up and getting stiff. Also make sure you use parchment paper or a sil-pat instead of greasing the pan.
