DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250º degrees.
  • Beat egg white & salt with mixer until frothy or fluffy. Add sugar very slowly while still using mixer.
  • Beat until a stiff peak forms and sugar is dissolved.
  • Fold in by hand vanilla.
  • Spoon (teaspoonful) onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 40-45 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly before removing to cooling rack.
  • Store in airtight container.
  • You can add (1/4 cup per batch or desired amount) chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, mint chips, etc. Fold these in last.
  • You can also substitute the vanilla with any flavor extract. I have used cherry extract with chocolate chips. These were excellent.
  • You can also add a couple drops of food coloring to the desired flavor of the kiss. If you use a drop of yellow with a drop of red to get an orange color you can use chocolate chips to have a Halloween kiss.
  • I don't suggest using wet ingredients such as maraschino cherries, pineapple, etc.
