Minty Meringues Recipe
Servings: 120 drops
Beaten egg-white shapes dry in an oven with crispy outside and marshmallowy inside. Use cleanest tools and freshest egg whites without even a speck of yolk in the whites. Drop by the tablespoon if you don't have piping bag or cake decorating tips.
Sit whites in bowl to room temp. Beat pale yellow on med/low. Raise to medium; beat in tartar. Raise to med/high; slowly add sugar; beating to glossy stiff peaks. Beat in peppermint. Set oven to 225°. Inside snipped piping bag, brush stripes with food gel. Add whites halfway; twist bag closed. Squeeze & pull up for drops; use serrated tip for swirls. Pipe onto baking pans coated with Teflon ™ nonstick. Oven dry 45-50 minutes. Turn off; keep oven closed 2 hours. Slip off pans; serve or store airtight in fridge..
