It’s time for the 4 Moms to share some favorite holiday recipes and we’re inviting you to link-up and share yours too.
Our family has a variety of recipes that we traditionally make this time of year, most of them involve chocolate. The recipe that I’m sharing with you today is not chocolate, but they are so beautiful and add such nice variety to our goody plates, that they always have a place in our holiday recipe line up.
2 egg whites
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 peppermint candy canes, crushed
Beat egg whites until foamy; add salt and cream of tartar and then beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar while beating until stiff peaks form (about 6-7 minutes).
Drop meringues by teaspoon full onto ungreased foil and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Bake at 225 for 1 1/2 hours. Then turn off heat and slightly open oven door. Lleave meringues in oven until cool (1-2 hours).
Makes 3 dozen.
