Mint meringues with chocolate chips. Light as air and melt in your mouth! A Christmas favorite. “Forgotten” because you leave them in the oven overnight. And “kisses” for their shape.
Preheat oven to 350˚F for at least 15 minutes.
Beat egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Add salt and cream of tartar and beat until stiff but not dry. Add sugar slowly, beating well until stiff and glossy. Fold in the extract and food coloring. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Place in the oven, close the door and immediately turn off the heat. Leave in the oven for 5 hours or overnight. Do not open oven during this time.
Cookies should be crisp and dry inside.
If cookies have not dried completely during this time due to high humidity or if your oven doesn’t seal well, put meringues back into the oven. Then turn oven on to 200˚F until it’s preheated. Then turn off the oven again and leave the cookies in there for 2-3 additional hours.
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
