Happy Valentines Day–Pink Cookie Meringues

This was a family favorite growing up.  My mom made these all the time (Thanks mom!) They have always been know as “Pink Cookies” to us and it seems the perfect cookie to serve up on Valentines Day!

Warning: These flirty little cookies contain lots of sugar. If you are a regular blog reader, you know I try to stay away from processed white sugar but sometimes I say, It’s OK  Smile  They are extremely easy (a must on my blog) and happen to be gluten free.

be mine

3 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Few drops of red food coloring.


Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl.  Let stand at room temperature for 30 min.  Beat till foamy.  Add cream of tartar and salt: beat till stiff peaks form.  Gradually add sugar, one tbsp at a time, beating on high till stiff peaks form again. (about 5 min)  Add food coloring.  Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Bake on lightly greased baking sheet at 300° for 20 – 25 min or until firm to the touch.  Cool on wire racks.  Put in airtight container. Yield 2 dozen.
These taste even better (chewier) the next day~ If they last that long Winking smile
