Meringue kisses

I love to bake these cookies as these are the cutest & most delicious cookies to make. The crunchy & marshmellowycentre just love it. I made these cookies for my Nephew's birthday party, the kids & the parents loved it. Some capt on asking me what it is & whether these cookies were made from ice cream.

2egg whites
1/2cup super fine sugar
Pinch of Cream of Tatar
1/2tsp vanilla essence 

Preheat the oven to 120 C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or greased paper, set aside Beat egg whites with Cream of Tatar until very stiff or stiff peaks. Add 1 tbs of sugar at a time and beat until thick and glossy, add vanilla mix well. If you want color, add the amount of color and fold gently to corporate. Transfer the meringue mixture into a piping bag or a plastic zip bag and pipe on the parchment lined tray as small circles or you can drop heaped spoon on the tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 30 minutes. After baking, leave the tray inside the oven for the meringues to dry for 1 hour. After baking meringues can be taken easily from the tray. You can keep meringues in an air tight container for weeks...........enjoy!

  1. Looks absolutely amazing, kind of reminds me of the look of cotton candy. I grew up with this and now I am longing for them, so I am going to give a go at this. You didn't mention the approximate number of meringue kisses this makes? Or did you?
