Yield: 90 meringue candies • Preparation: 30 minutes • Bake: 1 hour • Dry: overnight

  1. 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  2. ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  3. ½ cup sugar
  4. ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
  5. 2 teaspoons strawberry extract
  6. ⅛ teaspoon salt
  7. 2 drops red liquid food coloring
  1. Preheat oven to 250°.
  2. Line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat at high speed with a mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and confectioners’ sugar, beating to blend. Add strawberry extract, salt, and food coloring. Beat until mixture is thick and creamy, approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer egg white mixture to a piping bag fitted with a very large star tip (Ateco #848). Using an upright motion, pipe egg white mixture onto prepared baking sheets, pulling up tip to produce a drop shape.
  5. Bake for 1 hour. Turn oven off, but leave candies in oven overnight, or at least 6 hours, to continue drying out.
  6. Store in airtight containers.
  1. • Since humidity will affect meringues, bake them when the air is dry.
