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.

What a great concept, Coco! I've read your 12 Days of Cookies posts and am looking forward to the next 9. They all look delicious - might just print them out and put them in my cookie binder.

You are right, those are some odd looking cookies but they sound tasty. What are you going to do with so many cookies?

Sandy Smith said...

These look so good! Love the contrast between airy meringue and the solid chocolate. Yum!

I love meringue cookies and these look yummy. Good tip on freezing the egg whites. I never thought of that. I froze the egg substitute before but didnt think of the fresh egg whites.Thanks!
Funny story- I had a dream last night that you were in. I dreamed I went to some home (yours?)and you were there. You were singing or something. I started waving and relized you dont know me by face. Then somehow, you were at my house. It was a totol disaster area and I was so embarressed by the mess. Thats all I remember. LOLO

Oh my goodness, Courtney! These look absolutely TO DIE for. I have a cookie swap coming up and someone requested cookies with nuts - any nuts - and I might well make these. ('Cause I need chocolate - any chocolate! ;-)

Chocolate. Meringue. Biscuits!
What a wonderful three words to put together. I am trying to decide what aspect of them I like the most - they really sing to me! Delicious!

Hazelnuts and chocolate are always welcome around here! I've never made any kind of meringue cookie, so I'm thinking I should try these. Your version is tempting...

Emily said...

Chocolate meringue biscuits sound really good. I wish I made stuff with meringue more often.
This sounds like a fun group!

Christina said...

Those look so good! I like how it's sort of lighter than a regular cookie, but just as tasty.
