Chocolate Meringue Cookies

After school on Friday, Keri was complaining that she didn't want to do something on Saturday and wouldn't survive. I told her if she survived, I'd make her chocolate cookies. So I made them yesterday, but since she didn't get home until late, gave them to her today. I didn't get to see if she liked them though since her doorbell rang and I was on my way to the grocery store.

The cookies are from this month's issue of Eating Well, without the cocoa nibs. I didn't follow the tip and freeze them, but they were better yesterday than today I think. They're really rich, something I don't expect from a meringue, and a bit more dense than a plain meringue cookie. They're studded with bits of chocolate that make for a nice crunch or explosion, depending on how long they'd cooled for. Plus, with pasteurized egg whites, I could eat the batter without worrying! (Well, for the most part. It's still probably not the best idea.)
