Meringue cookies are sweet cute little dessert made from egg whites. A great way to make especially when you have left over egg whites in the fridge. It's fun making it especially choosing colors to tint the meringue and pipe using nozzles you prefer.
You will need a handheld mixer or a stand mixer to make this. Using a regular whisk won't do as much as work as an electric mixer. It will take about 5 minutes to achieve a stiff peak form.
Kids and adult love Meringue cookies. Texture is so light and smooth and melts in your mouth. Meringue cookies can be packed using candy treat like the one on the photo and mix the colors that you chose if you will be sharing them to family and friends or co-workers. You can also store some left overs in an air tight containers to retain its' freshness.
Baking will be a challenge because we have to bake it at low temperature to avoid burning the meringue. It will take about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to bake at 200F. We want these cookies to harden that's why we want more time in the oven. Also, after baking, cookies will be left inside the oven for another 15 minutes before taking it out to make sure the cookies won't deflate due to change of temperature in your kitchen.
