Many years ago a dear friend gave me this recipe. I like to make it
during the holidays because it’s easy, delicious and low-calorie.
Adjust oven racks to divide oven into even thirds. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Use an electric mixer to beat 2 egg whites with 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.
Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar. Beat until stiff.
Fold in 10 oz. (1 3/4 cups) green mint chips, chocolate mint chips or a
half and half mixture of green mint chips and semi-sweet chocolate
Drop by teaspoon on two lightly greased cookie sheets. Put each cookie sheet on a separate rack in the oven.
Turn off oven and leave overnight. Don’t open oven.
