Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies Tips
Do I have to use a piping bag to make chocolate chip meringue cookies?
While a piping bag makes for more uniform meringue cookies, it’s not a necessity! If you can’t get your hands on a piping bag, you can simply use a tablespoon to drop cookies by the spoonful onto the baking sheet. If you're looking for something that works like a piping bag, a Ziploc bag
with the corner snipped off does the trick!
Why did my chocolate chip meringue cookies crack?
Meringues can crack because of the sudden change in temperature when you take them out of the oven. To help with this, turn the oven off when meringues are cooked, but leave them inside until completely cool. Meringues will also crack if too much air is whipped into them, which creates large air bubbles that split open when baked. Check out our tips for making the perfect meringue
How should I store chocolate chip meringue cookies?
Once the meringues are cool, place them in an airtight container with parchment paper between layers to prevent them from sticking. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, or keep them in the freezer for up to 1 month. These meringue cookie recipes
