Peppermint Meringues

 Ingredients List

  • 6 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 20 drops red food coloring


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F, and line 3 or 4 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes, or until it looks white and foamy. Keep the mixer running and add the regular sugar very slowly (4-5 separate additions) and beat for 2 minutes between each addition. Beat until firm peaks form, approximately 2 more minutes. Add the powdered sugar slowly and the peppermint extract and beat for another 1 minute to blend completely. Drop the food coloring over the top of the meringue; but do not stir. Use a spatula to fill a large plastic freezer bag...cut a 1/2 inch off of a corner at the bottom of the bag. Make little blobs on the parchment paper...the kids love this!

Bake for about 2 1/2 hours or until they are dry. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely (1 hour so they can become crisp).

Store in an airtight container with parchment paper separating each layer so they don't stick together.
