Apricot Almond Meringue Cookies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Cookies

 Ingredients List

  • 4 lg Egg whites; at room
  • -temperature
  • 1 pn Salt; or cream of tartar
  • 3/4 c Sugar; superfine
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 4 oz Dried apricots; finely diced
  • 1/4 c Slivered almonds; lightly
  • -toasted


Preheat the oven to 225 degrees. Lightly grease two cookie sheets or, if
you prefer, grease parchment or waxed paper spread on cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with the salt or cream of tartar until
the whites make soft peaks. To make a tender meringue, gradually add all
but 2 tablespoons of the sugar as you continue to beat. Check to see if the
sugar has dissolved by pinching the meringue. When you can no longer feel
the crystals, fold in the remaining sugar, then the vanilla extract, and
finally the apricots and almonds.

Drop neat spoonfuls of the meringue batter onto the cookie sheets; give
them attractive peaks, as they will not spread or change their shape. Bake
for 1hour without opening the door. Turn off the oven and keep them in the
unopened oven for at least another hour or as long as overnight. Remove the
cookies with a spatula. Store them in airtight tins or, closed tightly in a
plastic bag, in the freezer, where they will keep indefinitely.

NOTES : These light, tender meringue cookies are a good way to use up extra
egg whites.
