Peppermint Meringues


This is a recipe I make at Christmastime or for tea parties. Our girls adore them! It's also a great way to use up those leftover Christmas candy canes! Enjoy! 


2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 peppermint candy canes, crushed


In large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar. Mix together, adding sugar one tablespoon at a time. Beat on high for 5-7 minutes until stiff peaks form. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies. Bake at 225 degrees for 90 minutes. Turn off heat, and leave candy in oven with door ajar for one hour to cool. Makes 3 dozen.
