Peppermint Meringues

Peppermint in January??Well, I am sure you could have peppermint at any time of the year but these were made the past holiday season.As I mentioned earlier in my posts, I made a few cookies (Mexican Wedding Cookies and Coconut Macaroons) and and this is one of them.
I am running a fever for a day and I am very exhausted.So this is a quick post.It has been quite sometime that I fell sick, especially with cold and fever.But in the past month and a half, I fell sick twice which is unlike me.I have no clue where I contracted this from!Although I am tempted to blame it on my daughter, I don't think that is the case.I and my daughter drank frooti 3 days back and that is when it all started is what I suspect.Of course, no surety there! I do check the dates on the packs especially Maggi and Frooti but somehow we ended up with this horrible, horrible chest congestion and fever.She is doing much better now, much better than me.I wanted to post a T&T today along with this but as I said, my energy levels are kind of low and will do that in my next post.
3 egg whites
3/4 cup superfine sugar
Pinch of Cream of Tartar
1 tsp peppermint extract
2 drops red food coloring
Pinch of Salt
  • Preheat the oven to 300F;Line baking sheets with Parchment paper
  • Beat the egg whites until frothy
  • Beat the sugar along with salt and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form
  • Add the mint extract and swirl the drops of red food coloring
  • Use a tablespoon to drop them onto the baking sheet
  • Bake for an hour
  • Turn off the oven and keep meringues inside for 2 hrs to dry
