Yum! These cookies are really yummy, however I also flubbed the meringue. I think I overbeat it. It was more the consistency of thick glue. However, I just poured teaspoonfuls on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie stone and topped them with the candy crumbs and they tasted great! The second batch did better than the first, so maybe preheating the stone would be a good idea. Thanks for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 egg whites

  • peppermint candy, finely crushed (I put them inside a paper bag and then use a rolling pin to crush them)


  1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
  2. Beat egg whites, peppermint extract and cream of tartar on high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  3. Gradually add sugar, one tablespoonful at a time, while continuing to beat until stiff peaks form.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until meringues are firm and their bottoms are very lightly browned.
  7. Cool to wire rack.
