Betty's Easy Meringue Cookies (2 Ingredients)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

Betty was a family friend of my husband's Grandfather and this is her recipe. My DH loved these as a child.


  1. Beat whites until very stiff.
  2. Gradually add sugar and keep beating until mixture forms peaks.
  3. Grease or spray, with cooking oil a large cookie sheet and put teaspoon amounts on to the sheet about 2 inches apart.
  4. Place in preheated 225 degree oven on the middle rack and bake for 30 minutes. Check to see if the center of the cookie is dry for doneness.
  5. If dry, remove from oven and bang sheet- the cookies should jump off the sheet!
  6. Note: Do not brown!

Instead of using granulated sugar, I used the same amount of powdered sugar and the cookies came out even better

This is a good meringue recipe with not a lot of cook time. I added vanilla bean, vanilla extract, cream of tartar and salt, which made the meringue cookies taste even better. I piped them with a star tip. They looked and tasted great.

Adding a bit of vanilla helps to dilute the sugary taste. Overall, it is delicious!
