    List of Ingredients

    Holiday Meringues

    3 egg whites
    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
    Red or pink paste food color

    Heat oven to 200 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or foil. In large bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar; beat until foamy. Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until meringue is stiff and glossy. Beat in peppermint extract.

    Fit large decorating bag with 1/2-inch star tip. With small brush, paint 3 to 4 evenly spaced stipes of food color on inside of bag from tip to upper edge. Carefully spoon all meringue into bag. Pipe 1 1/2-inch diameter stars about 1 1/2 inches apart onto paper-lined cookie sheets.

    Bake at 200 F. for 1 hour or until dry, but not brown.
    3 dozen cookies
