Directions for chocolate macaroons.
Beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Beat in sugar, a little at a time; beat until mixture is thick and glossy. Mixture should stand in peaks. Fold in almonds, vanilla, and melted chocolate. Drop chocolate macaroons by teaspoonfuls onto buttered cookie sheets. Bake chocolate macaroons at 350 F for 12 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 48 chocolate macaroon cookies.
