“Crunchy minty Christmas cookies!” - by Mary
Original recipe yields 56 cookies
- Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites, vinegar and salt to soft peaks. Gradually add sugar while continuing to whip until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Fold in 1/3 of the crushed candy canes, reserving the rest. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls, one inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle remaining crushed candy canes over the top.
- Bake for 90 minutes in the preheated oven, or until dry. Cool on baking sheets.

Third, beat the eggs a little longer than you think you should (call it very stiff peaks). Folding in the candy canes causes the eggs to deflate a little bit. And finally, don't add extra peppermint extract like I did... mine are just TOO minty."
