Kids Can Cook Meringue Cookies

This fun & easy recipe only requires a few, simple ingredients but are oh-so-yummy to eat.  We make these cookies every year.  Sometimes, we loop a piece of ribbon through each cookie and hang them from our tree too.

You’ll find the printable recipe card below.

 

Easy Meringue Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Dash of Salt

Directions:

  1. Allow your egg white to come to room temperature.  In the meantime, get your mixing bowl & beaters really cold by placing them in the freezer.
  2. In the very cold mixing bowl, beat together all ingredients except the sugar until soft peaks form.
  3. Add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time and continue beating on high speed until very stiff peaks form (about 7 minutes).
  4. Using a plastic storage bag with one corner snipped off, squeeze meringue into shapes onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a 350 oven for about 35 minutes.  Turn off the oven and leave the cookies in there for another hour.
  6. Eat the cookies as they are or fill them with fruit, pudding or ice cream.
