My dog isn’t sure.  (although I second his opinion if it’s in regard to the pumpkin guts… bleh)

Cookies on Halloween seems like a good idea. Right? These aren’t filled with fake blood or black or orange or even scary… unless you consider them to be scary delicious! Waaaaah-ha-ha-ha. That’s my evil laugh in typed form.

Reaching. I know.

Halloween, Holidays, and sometimes Mondays or Tuesdays and definitely Fridays and always the weekend are good for cookie eating so here is a recipe.

Boo!

Zombies.

Witches.

Boo!

Cookies.

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

3 egg whites
1/8tsp cream of tartar
1/2tsp vanilla
2/3C superfine sugar*
1T unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3C mini chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 300.
Combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat until soft peaks form. Add in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine sugar and cocoa.
While continuing to beat egg whites, slowly add sugar mixture. Do this slowly to avoid losing the peaks you have worked so hard to make. Mixture will become glossy.
Fold in optional chocolate chips if you wish.
Drop by 1/4C onto parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake for 30 minutes. Rotate pan. Bake for another 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and let cool completely in oven, about 2 hours.
After they have cooled, remove from oven. Eat. Store leftovers in airtight container.

*to make superfine sugar: run regular sugar through the food processor for about 1 minute
