DIRECTIONS

  • Combine everything for the cookie dough; chill while preparing meringue.
  • To prepare meringue: Beat egg whites with salt in small bowl until soft mounds (not peaks) form. Gradually add sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form. (Once you get peaks that stand up, stop. You can overbeat meringue.) Fold in vanilla, vinegar, chocolate chips, and crushed candy.
  • Shape dough into balls using a rounded teaspoon. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.
  • Top each cookie with a rounded teaspoon of meringue. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minute.
