Meringue Cookies

meringue cookies

I was motivated to make these cookies to use up the 6 egg whites left from my Creme Brulee recipe. They were very good and an especially big hit with my sweet-toothed daughter! They would make a pretty food gift or as a pretty presentation on a plate for a special occasion.

Meringue Cookies are very adaptable to variations. You can add chocolate or cocoa powder, peppermint extract, crushed candy canes, ground nuts (almonds or hazelnuts are nice), coconut or maple sugar.
