12 Days Of Cookies A Gourmet Cookie Extravaganza…Chocolate Meringue Biscuits

On the third day of Christmas, Glamah baked for me… Chocolate Meringue Cookies, Benne Wafers,and Navettes Sucrees. ! Glamah’s meringues do not look as cute as the people at Gourmet.com, but they taste great. These were so refreshing to make between other baking. I love whipping up egg whites and happened to have plenty in the freezer from leftover from various projects. The only thing I changed due to economy and what was in my pantry was the addition of Hazelnut meal as opposed to ground blanched almonds. Plus Certain Someone loves Hazelnut and chocolate together.
Nothing to complain about with this one. Is that because it was published in October 1982 and the directions are more clear? Who knows. I should have piped the meringues bigger and with swirls, but the I like these odd little cookies.
These are pretty easy and will be great for everyone. Play around with the piping and surprise yourself!
Be sure to check out my other baking friends and see what they chose from Gourmet.com to bake for the holidays.
