Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks. Add vanilla extract and stir. Fold chocolate chips and pecans into the mixture. Drop by teaspoonful onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 1 minute. Turn oven off and let cookies continue to bake as the oven cools until light and crispy, 5 hours to overnight.

Cook's Note:

The key to stiff egg whites is to bring eggs to room temperature and make sure your bowl and beaters are completely dry.

This is a five star recipe for ingredients and taste 4-stars for method. This was my second time to make meringues having failed my first time. I researched to find that the egg whites should be cold to separate then allowed to sit a minute. I added 1/8 tsp cream of tartar to the unbeaten eggs. The rest of the method is right on and the cookies came out perfectly. I did reduce the sugar by half for health reasons-and frankly for us they didn't need more sugar. I left them for almost 10 hours (overnight) and they were perfect. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
