Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 egg whites, only
  • 14 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 12 teaspoon almond extract
  • 14 teaspoon red food coloring, liquid
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry jam

Directions

  1. Position racks to divide oven in thirds. Heat to 225°F You'll need 2 baking sheets lined with nonstick foil.
  2. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form whm beaters are lifted.
  3. On high speed, gradually add sugar and beat about 8 minutes until stiff, white, glossy peaks form and mixture no longer feels grainy. Beat in almond extract and food color until throughly blended.
  4. Spoon into large ziptop bag, snip 1/2 in off 1 corner and pipe 72 small mounds (each about 1 in across) 1 in apart on baking sheets.
  5. Bake 1 3/4 hour or until meringues feel firm. Turn off oven: leave meringue in oven 1 hour or overnight until kisses are dry and crisp all the way through. Peel off foil.
  6. Shortly before serving: Put 1/4 tsp jam on bottom of 1 meringue; sandwich with another meringue. Repeat with remaining meringues and jam.
