Fluffy, light delicious meringue cookies

Ingredients

4 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
food coloring (just a drop or two if you want to change the color)

Directions

Preheat oven to 225F.

Beat egg whites in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until frothy. (If using a freestanding mixer, use wire whisk attachment.)

Add cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Increase speed to medium-high.

Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar is dissolved and stiff peaks form.

Beat in extract until well blended.

Place meringue into pastry bag fitted with a 2D, 1G, or large star tip.

Slowly pipe out to form the meringue cookies.

Bake the meringues for about 45 minutes. Turn oven off. Let meringues stand in oven 1 hour or until completely cooled.

Serve with fresh whipping cream
