One of my good friends is pregnant and was craving my meringue cookies. Since Valentines day is coming up i thought it would be cute to make them into a loving treat. These cookies can be changed into any color you would suit your sweethearts style. These Meringue Cookies will be a hit on Valentine’s Day, no one can resist a homemade cookie that is not only delicious, but filled with love because they are homemade!
Meringue Cookies ingredients:
- 4 eggs whites
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Food coloring of your choice
- pinch of tarter
Meringue Cookies directions:
Line to bake sheets with parchment paper or silcon mat. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees F.
Combine the sugar, egg whites and tartar in the bowl from your mixer over (making sure your bowl is not touching the water) simmering water. Constantly whisk the egg whites until the sugar has dissolved.
Attach the whisk attachment on a stand mixer or a hand held mixture, slowly beat egg mixture. Add in vanilla extract and any food coloring . Slowly increase the speed and continue to beat mixture until stiff peaks have almost formed.
Mixture is ready when whisk attachment dipped into mixture leaves a curled but stiff peak when removed. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a open star tip and pipe your heart shape.
Bake for 1 ½ hours, then turn off oven and leave the door slightly ajar for meringues to cool down with the oven. Store meringue cookies in an airtight container away from any heat or moisture.
