Ingredients

  • 4 eggs whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Strawberry extract
  • 4 drops red Food coloring
  • pinch of cream of tarter

Instructions

  • Line two bake sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees F.
  • Combine the sugar, egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl from the mixer over simmering water, making sure your bowl is not touching the water. Constantly whisk the egg whites until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Move the bowl to the stand mixer and attach the whisk attachment on a stand mixer or use a hand held mixture and slowly beat egg mixture until mixed well.
  • Add in the strawberry extract, cream of tartar and food coloring. Slowly increase the speed and continue to beat mixture until stiff peaks have almost formed.
  • The mixture is ready when the whisk attachment dipped into mixture leaves a curled but stiff peak when removed.
  • Transfer the meringue cookie mixture to a pastry bag fitted with an open star tip and pipe your heart shape onto the sheet pans.
  • Bake for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the door slightly ajar for meringues to cool down with the oven.

How to Pipe Meringue in to Heart Shapes

  • After filling the pastry bag with strawberry meringue, pipe two small upside-down teardrop shapes with the sides touching. Repeat until all of the meringue cookie batter is used up.

Notes

The amount of cookies you end up with will be based on how many heart shapes you make. Most of the time I make them on the smaller side and end up with 24.
