Do you love Meringue cookies?
Are you a fan of chocolate chips?
Then you will want to read on now…
Christmas time in my husband’s childhood house was always full of hustle and bustle. So for special celebrations and holiday time, this was especially true.
I still recall the first year I was dating my husband. See I was included in their family celebration. But I was not only welcomed in with open arms, but their home for the holidays was truly inviting. From the decorations, to the presents, to the holiday foods, it was just a wonderful, good old fashioned Christmas.
One of my mother-in-law’s specialities are called Meringue Teaser Cookies (my husband always just calls them Meringue Chip Cookies).
I had never seen or tasted anything quite like them. But flashback to that first Christmas with him. These meringue cookies were indeed present.
How can I begin to explain about meringue cookies?
See they are like white sugary crunchy cookies from heaven. They are for those who have a sweet tooth and love chocolate. I happen to be both and have I mentioned the chocolate?!

Simply put, these cookies are nothing short of amazing. I have now made them myself from her recipe for our home each holiday time. Why? Because my whole family just loves them. But then again, I just love to bake cookies during the holidays!
If you don’t believe me, please do try the recipe below. I dare you not to love these. One simple thing, you need either a hand mixer or a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Otherwise, these cookies are fairly straight forward and easy to make. The waiting is the worst part, but promise it is very much worth it!!
