My absolutely favorite recipe that my precious mother made each year at Christmas was this recipe. Christmas was a special time in our home, and mom is the one who made it that way. She is dearly missed.
Raspberry Meringue Kisses
3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 tablespoons raspberry gelatin
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 cup miniature chocolate chips
Beat egg whites with salt until foamy. Add raspberry gelatin and sugar gradually, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Mix in vinegar; fold in chocolate chips. Drop from teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet covered with brown paper.
Bake at 250 degrees F for 25 minutes. Turn oven off; leave cookies in oven another 20 minutes.
Makes about 9 dozen cookies.
