These are a favorite in our house since they are so simple to create. And they were a hit at my mom’s cookie exchange with her friends. The best part about these is that you make them, throw them in the oven, turn off the oven and go to bed. They are ready in the morning for your next day (That is why Rowan doesn’t like them… She likes to make and eat and not have to wait. )

Yes, you can make these with Keto sugar as well. I have used the powdered keto sugar and sugar-free chocolate chips.

Forgotten Meringue Cookies

Servings: 36 cookies
Calories: 37kcal


  • mixer


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Do not put these in before the oven hits 350!
  • Add vanilla to egg whites and beat with an electric hand mixer on high until just foamy.
  • Add cream of tartar and beat on high until soft peaks form.
  • Slowly add in sugar while continuing to beat until all sugar is added and tall stiff peaks have formed. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Portion out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (they don’t need to be spaced out much). Working one teaspoon at a time, push a teaspoonful of meringue from the tip of 1 teaspoon with the back of another teaspoon onto the lined baking sheets, leaving 1-inch of space between cookies. 
  • Place all cookies into the oven at once and immediately shut the oven off.
  • Leave these undisturbed in the oven for at least 2 hours (Preferably overnight so that they can harden up.)

I recommend making these the night before you need them as they’ll need to be “forgotten” in the oven until morning.

*not to be made on a rainy or very humid day!*

**store in an airtight container at room temp! They’ll be good for a week to two if they make it that long!***

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
