I was trying to figure out what to do with these Andes baking chips I'd just bought ... and the thought just occurred to me: Meringues! I used this recipe but used the Andes instead of the mini chocolate chips. I'd forgotten how wonderful meringues are, and how diet-friendly -- 2 meringues are just 1 WW point (even with the Andes chips). Thanks so much for posting this!

I lvoe meringues. They are one of my very favorite cookies. These were easy to do and came out quite good. I made them big because I was tired and therefore did not get the 48 cookies the recipe said I should, but I'm aware that it is my fault! Because they were bigger they were still a little chewy after 40 minutes, but a lovely flavor. Something I'll make again I'm sure. Thanks for posting this one.
