Ingredients

  • 4
    egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp
    vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp
    corn starch
  • 1 c
    sugar (i like to use caster sugar, see note)

    cherry jello mix (powder)
  • 1 Tbsp
    berry blue jello mix (powder)
  • 1/2 tsp

How to Make 4th of July Meringue Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. In mixing bowl (that is completely clean and DRY), beat egg white until foamy (about 30 seconds). Add vinegar and corn starch and continue to beat for another minute until soft peaks form.
  2. In a slow stream, add sugar. Beat for about 4-5 minutes until stiff peaks form.
  3. Divide mixture into thirds. Beat in red Jello to one third, blue jello to second, and lemon extract to third.
  4. Fill pastry bags with meringue (one color in each bag) and pipe using a star tip.
  5. Place baking sheets in 200 degree oven for 90 minutes. Turn oven off and leave meringues in oven for 6 hours, or overnight, to harden.
  6. I usually make these in the evening after dinner, and leave in overnight. Package in airtight container (or Ziploc).
