Patricia Buckholz calls these ethereal cookies "forgotten meringues" because she turns off her oven and leaves them there to cool overnight.

Recipe Ingredients for chocolate chip meringues

2 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup finely chopped semisweet chocolate

Recipe Directions for chocolate chip meringues

  1. Preparation

  2. 1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until thick and foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until mixture holds stiff, shiny peaks.

  3. 2. With a spatula, gently stir in almond extract and chopped chocolate. Spoon 1/2-tablespoon portions into 1-inch-wide mounds (or with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain or star tip, pipe 1-inch-wide mounds) about 1 inch apart onto cooking parchment - lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

  4. 3. Bake meringues in a 275 regular or convection oven until dry and firm to touch on the outside and almost dry inside (break one open to test), 30 to 35 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then slide a spatula underneath meringues and transfer to racks to cool completely.
