Meringue Hearts

Meringues are easy to make and taste delicious!

This recipe makes about 60 meringue cookies (but we gobbled them up in a day or 2)

What You'll Need
- 4 Egg Whites
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 1 1/3 cups Sugar
- Food coloring (optional)
- cake decorating icing bag


The How To
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

- In a medium mixing bowl you are going to beat the Egg Whites, Vanilla, and Cream of Tartar on high until SOFT peaks form. (that is where the tips curl)

- Then add the Sugar....ONE Tablespoon at a time.

- Now you need to beat the mixture until STIFF peaks form (that is where the tips stand straight up)

- Next if you want to color your meringue, nows the time to add food coloring until you get your desired color.

- Then fill the cake decorating bag with the meringue mix.  I did NOT put a decorating tip on the bag.

- Now to put your hearts on the pan.  For each heart, squeeze the meringue on to the pan in a V formation....making sure that the lines of the V touch. 

-Time to stick them in the oven and bake them for 20 minutes (until they are firm and the bottoms are lightly browned)

- Put your meringues on a cooling rack.

- When cooled off....ENJOY!!!

I don't get it...why wouldn't you want want people sharing your links to your blog on pinterest where you attract people to come to your blog? By requesting the removal you have made me NOT want to view your blog anymore. I think it's sad that your so concerned about your 'rights' when the pics that get pinned have your blog name right on them.
