Pink Cookies - Meringue Jello Cookies

"This recipe has been in my In-law's family for a very long time. Every holiday they are made for parties. They are the first cookie that is gone!!! This is a low calorie cookie - that even for Weight Watchers (WW) they are about 1 point for 2 smallish cookies!!!"

Ready In:
8hrs 15mins




  • Carefully seperate egg whites from yolks - ANY yolk left in the egg whites and you will not be able to make the meringue!
  • In a clean dry bowl whip egg whites, white vinegar and salt until stiff (but not dry!).
  • Add in sugar and jello powder (Traditionally we use Red Jello - such as raspberry or Cherry -- ).
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • On buttered cookie sheet, drop spoonfuls of meringue - I do smaller, bite sized cookies.
  • Bake on a buttered cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 250* then turn off the oven and let them sit there over night.
  • Do not peek or open the oven! They will turn out soft and chewy!
  • Preparation time is to make the meringue - Cooking time is total time to make!

  1. AWEFUL!! WAY TOO much salt! I tried this recipe and threw the entire batch away!! We couldn't eat them! I like the idea of the cherry & chocolate in the meringue, but with a different recipe!
  2. I agree with chef 908577! AWFUL! I too threw out the entire batch because the recipe called for too much salt.<br/><br/>Lesson learned - read comments first!
  3. GARBAGE. My grandmother used to make these cookies and i couldn't find her recipe so i trusted This one. Mistake. My grandmother is rolling in her grave. The cookies were way too salty and never set. They all went in the trash. DONT DO IT
  4. I used lemon jello and added flaked semi sweet chocolate...use less salt and parchment paper
  5. I didn't go off of this recipe, but we make them a lot. We never put salt in them, and if we do only like 1/8 tsp. So you guys should try it again but dont put the salt in.
