2 large egg whites, room temperature
1/2 t cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips, finely chopped (or 2/3 cup mini)
Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a mixer beat egg whites til foamy then add cream of tartar. Then beat them to death (as my sister says) until fluffy - not dry. Gradually add sugar. When half is added, then add the vanilla. Continue mixing until the sugar is dissolved and meringues is shiny and tight. Fold in chocolate chips. Scoop by teaspoonfuls on to cookie sheet. Place in hot oven. Turn oven off and let rest without opening for 2 hours, at the littlest.
