Raspberry Meringue Cookies

January 28, 2014

I’m just going to admit that I have a problem. I’m addicted to Valentines inspired recipes. Especially easy ones like these raspberry meringue cookies! I tried this recipe once ages ago and was left disappointed. They tasted almost grainy and it wasn’t until closer inspection of the recipe that I realized I used the WRONG type of sugar!

Cooking 101… Read the entire recipe before you make it. Especially the ingredients! I’m glad that I decided to give these a second chance. The addition of raspberry and the light layer of dipped chocolate really push these over the edge. And the great thing is that they are SO so SO easy to make. Did you get the emphasis I put on “easy”??

Raspberry Meringue Cookies


  • 2 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry extract
  • food coloring (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking trays with parchment and set aside.
  2. Whisk your egg whites until foamy. Stir in the cream of tartar and beat until it just starts to look foamy. Slowly mix in half of the sugar. Once combined you can add the extract and food color if using. Whip in the remaining sugar until incorporated and glossy.
  3. Pipe your meringues into 2 inch circles or your desired shape. Place into the oven. Turn the oven off and allow them to sit overnight.
  4. Dip in chocolate if you prefer and enjoy!

There are so many options for adorable Valentines day packaging for these. I found some cute little Chinese takeout boxes a while back and decided to place a few inside with some decorative ribbon. Simple and sweet.

In case you were wondering, these did get the stamp of approval from my four year old. He thinks they are delicious. Mostly because I smothered them in chocolate right after this photo shoot, and anything that has chocolate has to be amazing. I’m pretty sure he didn’t even taste the cookie part. They have a light and airy texture that is surprisingly fun to munch on. I maybe ate one or five before packing them up and sending them on their way!

    I was recommended this web site by my cousin.

    I am now not positive whether or not this publish is written through him as no one else realize such particular about my problem.
    You’re incredible! Thank you!

    Made the cookies last night, havent tried one yet but they seem not done, sticky to the touch. Is that how they are supposed to be?

    Hi! I stumbled upon your recipe on Pinterest and love the idea! I just have one question, how long do I bake them before turning off my oven?
    Thanks! :)
