I made meringue cookies for the first time tonight… in fact it was actually the first time I’ve made meringue. I have seen it made before so I knew what to expect.
3 egg whites
1 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
I whipped the egg whites until they were foamy. I slowly added the sugar and my mixer whip it until it was shiny and stiff. Then I folded the vanilla in. Spooned large blobs on to a pan and baked for 30-35 minutes in a 257 degree oven. I made 1/2 of the batch then added 1 tsp of raspberry extract and 2 drops of red food coloring and baked the rest.
I’m quite proud of these and they are delicious! I can’t believe they came out so well on my first attempt because I know that meringue can be difficult.
