Debbie's Peppermint Kisses
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Beat egg whites, salt, cream of tartar and peppermint extract together until soft peaks form. Add brown sugar gradually, beating all the time. Beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside 48 chocolate pieces and fold remainder into egg mixture.
Drop teaspoonfuls 1 inch apart onto waxed paper on a baking sheet. Top each with a chocolate piece. Bake in a 300°F degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until set and slightly brown.
To remove cookies, remove paper from baking sheet, spread a wet towel on the hot baking sheet and place the paper of kisses on the towel. Let stand only 1 minute. The steam will loose the kisses and they will slip off easily onto a spatula.
