  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Move rack to center of the oven. Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Store in tightly sealed containers.
  • NOTE: If you prefer, substitute regular sugar for the jello.
  • Chopped drained maraschino cherries, mini-chocolate chips or chopped nuts may be mixed into the batter.
