Christmas Baking: Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies
Day 18 of 25 Days of Christmas
These cookies were shared at my Annual Cookie Exchange Party this year and they are just wonderful! I love the flavor combination of the peppermint and the chocolate. Please enjoy this recipe and if you make them, let me know!
2 egg whites
1/8 t. cream of tartar
1/2 c. suagr
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
1/4 c. finely crushed peppermint candies
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs whites and cream of tartar. Beat at high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, while beating at high speed. Bet until stiff peaks form. Fold in chips and candies. Drop dough by round teaspoons, 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake 25-30 minutes or until dry. Cool completely before removing from parchment paper.
Tip: Egg whites should be at room temperature to products maximum volume when beaten.This is part of the 25 Days of Christmas Series here at The Weekend Housewife. Join me for 25 glorious days of Christmas recipes, crafts, activities, photo prompts and tips and a lot more!
