  • Notes:

    • To prevent meringues from cracking
    • Do not open the oven door while the cookies are baking. Peel cooled meringues off of the parchment paper.
    • Use grease-free tools:
    • Using grease-free tools are a must when making meringue. This helps to ensure meringue sets properly.
    • Avoid using a plastic mixing bowl:
    • Plastic mixing bowls can retain fat and grease from past recipes, so use a glass or metal mixing bowl.
    • Avoid under or over beating:
    • Make sure to beat until stiff peaks are reached and don’t beat past that point.
    • To store:
    • Meringue cookies will last for up to a week in an airtight container
