Melt-in-your-mouth Peppermint Meringue Recipe:
2 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 c sugar
2 peppermint candy canes (crushed)
In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Sprinkle with salt and cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
Drop with a small spoon onto ungreased foil or paper lined baking sheets; sprinkle with the crushed candy.
Bake 225 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off the heat but leave the cookies in the oven with the door ajar (keep the little ones far away, lock them out of the kitchen if you can, be absolutely sure where they are though as the oven and pan will still burn them) for at least 1 hour (or until cool).
