Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. -John Muir

Chocolate Chip Meringues

A tough day needs a sweet ending.  A tough week needs cookies.  I think that's all that needs to be said in introduction to these pillowy cookies.  They are as light as air so you won't feel guilty for having more than one an entire batch.

What you will need:
6 egg whites
3/4 tsp salt
3/8 tsp cream of tarter
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
12 oz. mini chocolate chips 

In a large bowl beat the egg whites until frothy.  Add the salt, vanilla, cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form.  Gradually add the sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.  Gently fold in the chocolate chips.  Bake cookies at 300 deg for 25 minutes.  The outside should be crispy and the inside with be hollow/pillowy. 

The last step is to take a plate full of these babies and relax.  You had a hard day, you deserve this.
