Chocolate Meringues

From the first time I baked these cookies, they've been a lip-smacking success. Old-fashioned and attractive, they make a perfect holiday pastry. I'm the grandmother of six and stay active with a German folk dance group.

    These taste like a gooey brownie. Every Christmas I make these and they always devour in a day or two.
