“Super festive, super easy, and super tasty! Does it get any better?? :) My kids love how the meringue melts in their mouths! If you leave the oven door open just a little it can help keep the meringue from browning.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat egg whites in a bowl until they form soft peaks; beat cream of tartar and vanilla extract into egg whites. Gradually beat white sugar into mixture until meringue forms stiff peaks. Transfer 1/4 of the meringue mixture into a separate bowl. Beat red food coloring into remaining 3/4 of meringue.
  3. Transfer colored meringue into a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe 20 Santa hat shaped triangles, about 1 1/2 inch tall and bending over at the tips, onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the hats with red sugar.
  4. Transfer remaining 1/4 uncolored meringue into a clean piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe little white pom-poms onto each hat tip and a small edging of fluffy white trim onto the bottom of each hat.
  5. Bake meringue cookies in the preheated oven until hard but not browned, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn off oven and let cookies cool inside oven until crisp, 1 hour.

These turned out super cute and tasted like cotton candy. The recipes was easy to follow. I had never made meringue before and was leery of it after I tried to make macaroons but these were perfect. They will be a nice addition to my holiday plates.

I loved this recipe! Super easy to make, which since this was my first time making meringue, was appreciated! I decided to put more red coloring and not do the sprinkles. I also let mine cool outside the oven! Great job!!
