These pretty peppermints melt in your mouth—perfect for a holiday cookie tray or a baby shower!

Ingredients

3
egg whites, at room temperature
1/4
teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4
teaspoon mint extract
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon red food color

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 175°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Beat in mint extract and salt. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high speed until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spoon half of meringue into medium bowl; add red food color. Beat until well blended.
  • 3 In large decorating bag fitted with #827 star tip, place spoonfuls of white and red meringue side by side, alternating colors and working up from tip of bag. Do not mix colors together. Onto cookie sheets, pipe meringue into 1-inch mounds.
