Meringue Kisses

MERINGUE KISSES FROM “THE JOY OF COOKING”


Description

Cute little meringue kisses that melt in your mouth…literally.

 


Ingredients

1 Cup Sugar

4 Egg Whites

1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tartar 

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract


Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 
  • Separate the eggs, saving the egg yolks for something else. 
  • Pour the egg whites into a mixer, and add the 1/8 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar. 
  • Beat on medium high until the egg whites form a peak but aren’t dry. 
  • Slowly add the sugar, and continue beating until you are out of sugar. 
  • Add the Vanilla Extract, and beat for about 10 more seconds. 
  • Spoon or pipe the mixture onto a lightly greased baking sheet. You can make fancy little kisses, or spoon little blobs. It won’t matter. They will all be delicious. 
  • Place in oven, and immediately turn the oven off. Let sit, undisturbed, for at least 1 1/2 hours, or preferably over night. Store in an airtight container. 
  • If stored uncovered, and they get soft, a few minutes in a 200 degree oven will dry them back out perfectly. 
  • To color them, stir a few dropof food coloring into them with a wooden spoon until throughly mixed. If you want more than one color, you will need to separate the meringue into separate containers before adding the food coloring.
