Forgotten Cookies

2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff, slowly add sugar, fold in chips. Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Turn oven off and let sit for at least 4 hours undisturbed. May add food coloring for festive appearance.

Note: Use pasteurized egg whites or meringue powder to avoid the risk of Salmonella poisoning. The egg whites in meringues do not reach a high enough temperature to kill the bacteria. Reviewers, please help us out and note the yield. Thanks!
