Holiday Treat – Meringue Cookies

Hello Friends! Today we have another treat, meringue cookies. These little pillows are light, crisp, and can be flavored with anything that you like! I hope you enjoy making, eating, and sharing Meringue Cookies!

  • Meringue Cookies
    • Ingredients:
      • 3 large egg whites
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
      • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
      • Dash of salt
      • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Directions:
    • Preheat the oven to 250ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
    • Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the vanilla extract, cream of tartar and salt. Turn the mixer on to high and mix until foamy. Start adding in the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Keep beating the mixture until it forms very stiff, glossy peaks, 7-10 minutes.
    • Transfer the meringue to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the meringue into small star cookies, about 1 1/4-inches in diameter. Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles, if desired.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, then turn the oven off, not opening the oven door, and let the cookies sit for at least an hour, or overnight.
    • Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Happy Baking, Eating, and Holidays!!
