Strawberry Meringue Cookies
Thursday, January 8, 2009 | Time: 1:47 PM

Y'know, I've always had trouble making meringue cookies. They've been too eggy or too flat or just plain weird. But today I tried once again and actually managed to make a decent cookie! I think having a little patience and using cream of tartar is a very helpful thing XD
This makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Strawberry Meringue Cookies
adapted from Chocolate Meringue Cookies recipe at Allrecipes.com

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup smashed fresh (or drained, frozen) strawberries
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Make sure you drain the strawberries well. Try pressing them on a fine sieve with a fork. Let the juice drip into a bowl to use in something else.
  3. Combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat until the whites form soft peaks. Slowly add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form, and mixture becomes glossy. Fold in strawberries.
  4. Drop mixture by spoon fulls greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
If you want to be fancy you can load these into a piping bag with a star tip and do it like you see them at shops! They're just as tasty eaither way.
I also made some of these with a little bit of chocolate-mint coffee and cocoa powder. Whats a little bit? Say 1 tsp.
