Chocolate Chip Meringues
Why This Recipe Works
The basic French meringue recipe method—beating egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form—not only was the simplest one but also produced cookies with the most delicate texture. One important detail we included in our meringue recipe was to beat the whites slowly, which lends stability. It was also important to add the sugar slowly in two batches once the whites were mostly whipped, since that gave them a structure firm enough to hold and absorb the sugar.
