    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    small c ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
    • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint oil extract
    • 1/3 cup candy canes (or crushed) or 1/3 cup hard peppermint candy, finely chopped (or crushed)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 175 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; do not use a silicone liner.
    2. 2
      Sift the confectioners' sugar twice to remove any lumps. Divide the sifted sugar in half.
    3. 3
      Beat the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer or hand-held mixer on medium speed until frothy, then increase the speed to medium-high and beat to form soft peaks. With the motor running, gradually add half of the sifted confectioners' sugar; beat to form firm peaks. Add the peppermint extract and beat just to combine. Remove bowl from the mixer.
    4. 4
      Sift the remaining sugar (yes, one more time) into the egg white mixture. Gently fold it in to form a batter that can hold its shape.
    5. 5
      The cookies can be dropped by spoonful onto the baking sheet. Or, transfer the batter to a pastry bag or resealable plastic food storage bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe kisses that are about 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch high onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing them at least 1/2 inch apart.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle the finely chopped or crushed candies evenly over the meringue kisses.
    7. 7
      Bake for about 3 hours, until dry and crisp. Turn off the oven; let the kisses remain in the oven for 1 hour to dry thoroughly before serving or storing.
