Christmas Meringue Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Caryn

These are a most unusual cookie with chocolate chips and crushed candy canes. They are so very different from any other Christmas cookie recipe with a wonderful combination of flavors.

These cookies were really light and tasty. I didn't have any dark brown paper so I cooked them on wax paper. They came out fine. I think next time I make them I will leave out the chocolate chips. Just a personal opinion.
