Meringue cookies (also known as snowkisses) are a perfect winter treat! They come in all shapes and sizes – my favourite ones are the ones which resemble little stars. If you want to save time, you can use a tablespoon to form „messy“ snowkisses.
I used to eat a lot of snowkisses when I was a small child as my Mum and Granny baked them very often but recently we have forgotten about this basic recipe. We usually have about 20 snowkisses and they disappear within a few minutes😋
- 3 egg whites, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Preheat oven to 100°C (=212°F).
- Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form (Use an electric mixer.). Then add sugar gradually (Many people use more sugar, however my meringues don’t need more than 1/4 cup sugar.).
- Use a tablespoon or a piping bag to form little meringue cookies.
- Bake for 90 minutes.
- Turn oven off. Leave baked cookies in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes to cool completely (It will be easier to remove them from the baking paper.).
Just give them a go!
