I've always wondered if one could flavor the popular meringue cookies with jello, but I never had the nerve to try it. Then I was given this recipe for the very thing! I cannot wait to try these.


  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Move rack to center of the oven. Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil.
  2. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Add the jello powder 2 tablespoons at a time while continuing to beat. The meringue should form stiff peaks.
  3. Drop mixture onto lined cookie sheets and bake in preheated oven 1 hour. Turn oven off and allow meringues to stand in unopened oven at least an hour.
  4. Store in tightly sealed containers.
  5. NOTE: If you prefer, substitute regular sugar for the jello.
  6. Chopped drained maraschino cherries, mini-chocolate chips or chopped nuts may be mixed into the batter.

I made these tonight... or rather, I attempted at making them. Unfortunately I do not know enough about making Meringues to fully understand your directions. I set my oven to 400°C but was unsure whether or not to leave it on after I put the meringues in. I will make another attempt at these as the flavour was REALLY good (as long as you didn't eat the very burnt bottom). I will re-review once I have mastered these!

you say to preheat the oven at 225 degrees, but is it celcius or ferenheit? it can make a BIG difference! ^^
