Meringue Cookies

Welcome to Valentine’s week on the Eagle’s Quill. Today I’ll share a yummy recipe for some feather-light cookies. Hang onto a few of them because we’re going to use them as part of a fancier-looking dessert later in the week.

3 egg whites

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

Dash salt

Few drops red food coloring

Beat egg whites, vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt till thick and foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat till stiff peaks form. Add food coloring and mix in. Put meringue in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe out onto parchment-covered baking sheets in small heart shapes. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Immediately remove cookies to racks.

You can do other colors and shapes for other holidays.
