- 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!
