60 cookies

Ingredients

4
large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only), at room temperature
2 teaspoons
almond extract
1/2 teaspoon
cream of tartar
1 cup
sugar
1/4 cup
powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 225°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine egg whites, almond extract, and cream of tartar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often,  until soft peaks form. Beat at high speed, gradually adding sugar 2 tablespoons at a time and scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved.
  3. Spoon level tablespoonfuls of meringue, 1 inch apart, onto prepared cookie sheets, using a knife or spatula to remove meringue from spoon. Swirl top of meringue with knife or back of spoon.
  4. Bake 1 hour. Turn off oven.  Let stand in oven 1 hour. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Recipe Tips

- Substitute cookie sheets lined with aluminum foil which have been sprayed with no-stick cooking spray for parchment-lined cookie sheets.

- It is important to make sure no egg yolk gets into the egg whites. Egg yolk will keep the egg whites from forming stiff peaks.

I've never even tried a meringue before today. They remind me of cotton candy, they melt in your mouth. It took me awhile to form them, I think I'll try putting the batter in a plastic bag and piping them next time.

I made these this wonderful Merinque Drop recipe for our local Celiac Support Group cookie exchange. These delicious cookies were the hit of the party with people excited about the flavor and texture. Best meringue drop I've ever had and easy to make! Thanks Land-O-Lakes! Love your site.

These came out quite good...once I realized I shouldn't make them so big. My first batch didn't set right in the middle, but when I did a second and made them smaller, they came out perfect. Melt in your mouth.

Most people have tried those they buy in a store, they are so surprised how good these are I also take toasted silvered almonds and sprinkle them on just as I turn the oven off.
