What You’ll Need:

There are only a handful of ingredients you need to make this treat. For a full list and measurements see the recipe card below.

  • Eggs
  • Cream of Tartar
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Extract- Pick the flavor you want and roll with it.

Step by Step Instructions:

While these cookies are super easy to make, they can be a little finicky. You want the end result to be a light, slightly dry, baked cookie. Follow the steps below to ensure the perfect meringue cookie every time!

  1. Start with room temperature eggs.
  2. Separate the eggs and beat until just foamy. Whisk in the cream of tartar and sugar.
  3. Fold in the extract and food coloring if using.
  4. Pipe onto a prepared baking tray and place in a preheated oven.
  5. Turn OFF the oven and leave your cookies in overnight.

Tips and FAQs:

  • I found that a hand mixer (affiliate) works best with this recipe.
  • Start with ROOM TEMPERATURE INGREDIENTS. I can’t stress this enough.
  • Use disposable piping bags (affiliate) for easy clean up.
  • I used a 1M Piping Tip (affiliate) to create my design

Why are my meringue cookies chewy?

Meringue cookies can soak up extra moisture. Following the directions closely and leaving them in the oven overnight is critical in achieving the perfect texture.

How do you store meringue cookies?

Use a quality air tight container (affiliate) away from moisture. If stored properly the cookies should last two weeks.
