2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar, extra fine
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet with brown paper
(such as a grocery bag) or aluminum foil. Beat egg whites
until foamy. Add salt and cream of tartar, and beat until stiff.
Add sugar, 1 T. at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Drop by
teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheet. Turn off oven and
put cookies in. Leave door shut, and do not remove cookies
for 8 hours.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Make last thing at night. These fluffy little
meringues are some of the easiest cookies to make. Use
leftover egg yolks for Gammie's butter cookie recipe or
creme brulee.
I usually double this recipe--you can fit one batch per baking
sheet. Put the cookies really close together. They bake like
magic overnight. Just don't forget to take them out before
turning the oven on next morning (like I did one year...)
