How to Make Meringue Star Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 250*. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer until frothy. Add salt, vinegar, and vanilla; beat at medium-high speed until soft peaks form.
  3. Gradually add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until sugar is nearly dissolved and stiff peaks form.
