Angels Among Us
Today we celebrate the feast of the Guardian Angels. As we were growing up Mom and Dad instilled in us that our Guardian Angel should be our best friends. I have always loved this image and is how I imagine our Guardian Angel always at our side. As a small child my husband and I learned this prayer. BAP and SSP are learning it now. Today Mom reminded me that growing up we made Angel Kisses for this special feast day.

2 egg whites, room temperature
1/8 t salt
1/8 t cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
peppermint/vanilla extract, optional
mini chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 225 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl add egg whites, salt and cream of tartar. Beat the heck out of this (using an electric hand mixer or countertop mixer) until stiff peaks form. Slowly add sugar. Fold in peppermint/vanilla extra and mini chocolate chips, if desired. Pipe small peaks on to cookie sheet. Bake for 1.5hours. Prop open oven and let cool completely.
