Tried making this tried-and-true recipe for the first time in this house with this gas oven. A complete failure, as the cookies were a sticky mess this morning. I think the back of the oven isn’t sealed (can see the flames when it’s heating from the back).
The recipe: oven to 400 degrees. Waxed paper on two cookie sheets. Make meringue with egg whites, sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Stir in 2 C of chocolate chips. Drop onto waxed paper. Into oven, close door, and turn off the oven. The next morning, crispy meringues! Except this morning I had a sticky mess.
So…any guidance on how I could tweak the baking process on these? Every recipe I’ve found is similar, involving cooking for a while and then turning off the heat and letting the cookies continue to dry in the oven.
