for 23 calories per 2 meringes, you can splurge this Christmas without bulging! for 23 calories per 2 meringes, you can splurge this Christmas without bulging!
Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    2 large egg whites
    2/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 tsp cream of tartar
    1/2 tsp flavoring of choice (almond, strawberry vanilla, rum, etc.)

Directions

1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until thick and foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until mixture holds stiff, shiny peaks.
2. With a spatula, gently stir in flavoring extract and any add-ins. Spoon 1/2-tablespoon portions into 1-inch-wide mounds (or with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain or star tip, pipe 1-inch-wide mounds) about 1 inch apart onto cooking parchment - lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
3. Bake meringues in a 275° regular or convection oven until dry and firm to touch on the outside and almost dry inside (break one open to test), 30 to 35 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then slide a spatula underneath meringues and transfer to racks to cool completely.

Number of Servings: 24

    These were SO easy and so much fun to make with the grandkids! We dyed them green and red and used mint flavoring and raspberry...SO yummy! Thank you for sharing! I love Steph-Louise's idea of the crushed candy canes. Guess we'll just have to make another batch! - 12/14/09

    I love these with 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Fold in mini chocolate chips and it's amazing! Thanks for the recipe! - 7/28/11

    This are great cookies. I used Rum extract, and I cooked just a bit too long, but they are still really good. I will definitely make them again. - 3/5/11

    I made these last year for Christmas. You can make the mounds and sprinkle things like nuts, sprinkles, colored sugar, candy canes, and the like. You can even swirl in some food coloring and it is really pretty. :D My favorite were the ones that had crushed walnut. yummy! - 5/19/10

    Great recipe. I make them often and try different flavorings and ad-ons. We like the almond extract with about 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips. - 1/11/10
