These little meringues are one of my favorite Christmas treats and they are super simple to make. Let get started!
4 large egg whites at room temperature
1 1/3 cups of sugar
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. cream of tartar
Candy canes (optional)
Combine the egg whites in a large bowl and beat on High until white and foamy. Then add the salt and cream of tartar. Continue mixing until soft peaks form.
Now set the timer for 7 minutes and mix in the sugar taking the entire 7 minutes to do so.
Next place the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip at the end and pipe little Christmas trees onto baking sheet.
If you are using candy canes, place them in a bag and brake them into little pieces. Sprinkle the candy canes on the meringues and bake them at 170º F for 2 hours. Check them often so that they don’t brown on top because every oven is different!
Hope ya’ll enjoy these super easy Christmas tree meringues! 🙂
