Ingredients
  

  • 6 egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • cups sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, almond extract, orange extract, lemon extract or peppermint extract
  • 4 drops food coloring

Instructions
 

  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 200° F.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy and stiff (if using a KitchenAid, gradually work up to speed 8).
  • Add cream of tartar and ½ cup of sugar at a time.
  • Add vanilla and desired food coloring.
  • Beat until the whites form a stiff peak.
  • Using a teaspoon, drop onto lined cookie sheets or pipe with an icing bag and tip. I prefer to use larger tips for meringues and disposable icing bags for quick cleanup.
  • Bake approximately 60 minutes watching carefully to not let them brown.

Notes

How To Store

Room Temperature or Refrigerate - Let them cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container. They will keep for up to 2 weeks.
Freeze - Place the cooled meringues in an airtight container with the layers separated by parchment. They will keep for up to a month. Thaw the meringues on cooling racks so that they don't take on any moisture. They will take an hour to thaw and should be used within a day.
