I am always looking for different ways to “show off” cookies, cakes, desserts in general, and this one is a goodie.
- 3 egg whites, room temperature
- 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
- dash of salt
- 3/4 cup berry sugar
- 1/4 cup raspberry jelly
- 4-6 drops of red food colouring
Heat oven to only 225 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the sugar, beating until very stiff…..stiffer than that. This should take about ten minutes. Now add the food colouring and jelly. Beat one more minute at the highest speed on your machine.
Drop meringue into 1″ mounds and bake for about 2 hours. Remove from the oven and when completely cooled, EAT THEM!
Okay, so they go to the hips.; Eat enough to make it even.
