How to Make Meringue Cookies


  • 1Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with foil.
  • 2In a large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until frothy. Add vinegar; beat until soft peaks form. Increase speed to high and gradually add sugar; beat until glossy stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla.
  • 3Remove half of meringue to another bowl; stir in cocoa until blended. Spoon tablespoons of both meringues onto prepared baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Each making about 44 cookies - half vanilla flavored and half cocoa flavored. Or bake until meringues feel dry and crisp all the way through, about 3 hours.
