How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk, beat egg whites with the cream of tartar at medium speed until soft peaks start to form form, 1 to 2 minutes. With the machine on, gradually add the sugar. Add the vanilla bean paste and cardamom and beat at high speed until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, scrape down the side and bottom of the bowl and fold in the chocolate chips, pecans and cherries.
