These are light fluffy and delicate. YUM. I have looked and looked for a simple recipe for meringue cookies. I have tried many and failed. This was found by searching various meringue cookies and directions and adapted by me. Enjoy.


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
  2. Mix egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, and salt together on high speed till frothy and bubbling.
  3. Next gradually add sugar 1/4 c at a time until completely mixed.
  4. Continue beating mixture for another 5 minutes or until it is forming stiff peaks.
  5. Spoon out mixture onto a foil lined cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 2 hours, checking to see that the cookies are golden.
  7. Turn oven off and then open the door to let the heat out and the cookie to dry completely.
