Ingredients

  • 3

    egg whites

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon peppermint extract

  • 1/8

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

  • Red paste food coloring

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites, cream of tartar, peppermint extract, and salt with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Using a new small paintbrush, brush stripes of red food coloring on the inside of a decorating bag fitted with a 1/2-inch open-star tip. Carefully spoon egg white mixture into decorating bag. Pipe 2-inch stars 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake about 1-1/2 hours or until meringues appear dry and are firm when lightly touched. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. To Store: Layer cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
