Sweet and light cookie-like desserts, meringue recipes are first found in a French cookbook by Massialot, published in 1692. Although my meringues might not be as authentic, they're still airy, delicious, and a family favorite. After making a school project about them, I decided to upload my recipe here as well :)

EDIT: Wow, thanks so much for all the favorites & the feature, guys! Means a lot ~

Step 1: Ingredients & Tools


3 egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract


2 cookie sheets
Tin foil
Egg beater
Cup & small plastic plate (for separating egg whites)
Measuring cups/tools (3/4 cup & 1/4 tsp)
Oven (duh)
They are so yummy! <br>And remind me of the cereal marshmallows. O:
Awesome recipe. Thank you for share!!!!
I used to eat this when I was a child, thank you so much for the recipe!
No problem! Enjoy.
Thank you!!!! I love this and my kids too.
You're welcome -- glad you like it!
Looks yum
Thank you. This is the same recipe I used when I was a little girl. I have seen these for sale in the store, but I know they taste so much better fresh.
You're welcome! <br>Yeah, they definitely do taste better fresh ;)
great! if you need a constant low temperature during that hour you can try <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-transform-your-old-electric-oven-into-a-mod/" rel="nofollow">the meringues solution</a> for your oven ;-)
Ooh, cool! That definitely seems helpful.
Yummy! You can flavor these too right?
Hmm, that's a good question. I've never tried it -- I'd assume you can though! Let me know if you do, I'd love to hear how it turns out :)
