Sweet, crisp, and easy to make Valentine’s Day meringue cookies.


  • 3 Lg Egg Whites (90 g)
  • 3/4 C (180g) Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tsp Clear Vanilla Flavor
  • Gel Food Coloring



  • Preheat the oven to 185 and line two cookies sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add the egg whites and sugar to a medium sauce pan and heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture reaches 130 degrees F.
  • Pour the egg white mixture into your stand mixer and whip with the whisk attachment. Start slow, then gradually increase the speed and whip until soft peaks form.
  • Add the cream of tartar and vanilla flavoring and whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Separate the meringue into bowls and color it with the gel food coloring.
  • Place in piping bags and pipe onto the prepared sheet pans. Top with sprinkles if desired and bake for 1-2 hours or until the meringue is crisp on the outside. Smaller meringues will bake quicker, and bigger ones can take up to a couple of hours.
  • Let cool completely then, remove from sheet pans and serve.
