Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Dash of salt
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • Red food coloring

Instructions

  • Add egg whites to mixing bowl and allow to stand for 30 minutes to bring to room temperature.
  • Add peppermint and salt to egg whites and begin beating on medium speed until mixture is white and foamy.
  • Gradually begin adding sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue mixing after each addition until sugar is fully dissolved.
  • Continue beating until mixture is white, glossy, and is forming stiff peaks.
  • Attach an open star tip onto a pastry bag. Paint stripes using a new, clean, small paint brush on the inside of the pastry bag.
  • Transfer meringue mixture to the pastry bag with tip attached.
  • Pipe mixture to 1.5-2 inches in diameter on a parchment lined baking sheet. Be sure that meringues are about an inch apart because they do spread just a bit.
  • Bake in a 200° oven for about 1 hour - 1 hour 20 minutes, until meringues are firm to the touch, but not yet browning.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Transfer to a dry, air-tight container and store at room temperature.
