  • Hand or Stand Mixer
  • 2 Baking Trays
  • 1 Piping Bag with a Star Attachment
  • Parchment Paper

Step 1: Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 3 Large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • A dash of salt
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • Strawberry puree
  • 3 drops of food coloring

For the strawberry puree

  • 5 large strawberries cut up
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar

Step 2: Separate Your Egg Whites

Separate your egg yolks from your egg whites. Let the egg whites sit out for 20 minutes.

Step 3: Line Your Baking Sheets and Preheat the Oven

Line 2 baking sheets of any size with parchment paper, this is so the cookies don't stick. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4: Make the Strawberry Puree

Add your chopped strawberries with the lemon juice and sugar to a sauce pan on medium heat. You strawberries can be frozen or fresh. Once the strawberries incorporate into the mixture let simmer for 2 minutes, then let cool. After it's cooled strain to get out any unnecessary strawberry pieces.

Step 5: Making the Cookies

Into a large bowl add your egg whites, vanilla extract, cream of tartar, food coloring, and salt.

Step 6: Whip Until Foamy

Whip the ingredients you just put in the bowl on high until foamy.

Step 7: Add Sugar and Puree

Slowly add sugar and strawberry puree until stiff peaks this should take about 7 to 10 mins

Step 8: Add You Meringue to Your Piping Bag

Add your meringue to your piping bag with whichever tip attachment you want. I like to use the star attachment because it gives it that classic meringue cookie look.

Step 9: Pipe Your Cookies

Pipe your cookies in small circles that are about 1 to 1 ¼ inch in diameter.

Step 10: Bake the Cookies

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 35 minutes. Once baked turn off the oven and let them cool and dry out for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results. Do not open the oven during this process.

Step 11: Enjoy

Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
