CALORIES: 30

PREP: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

4egg whites (room temperature)
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup (200 gr)granulated white sugar
1/2 tspvanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a large clean bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer stir on low speed until mixture becomes foamy. Increase speed to high.
  • With mixer on high, gradually add sugar, until sugar is well dissolved. Beat until mixture is thick, shiny, and has increased in volume.
  • Stir in vanilla extract (or and any other extract you may like to use.)
  • Transfer meringue in little piles to the prepared cookie sheet. The meringue cookies can be pretty close to each other as they won’t spread.

  • Meringue cookies should be crisp and can be stored in an airtight container. Keep away from heat and moisture as it can soften your meringues.
