  • Egg Whites: 3 (fresh)
  • Cream of Tartar: ¼ teaspoon
  • Sugar: 5 oz
  • Vanilla or Other Flavoring: ½ teaspoon
  • Salt: 1 pinch


  1. Prepare: Pre-heat your oven to 225ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat Mixture: In a pot, bring 2 inches of water to a simmer. Place a stainless steel mixing bowl over the water (without touching it). Combine egg whites and sugar in the bowl, whisking occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Whip: Once the egg whites are at 110ºF or you feel no sugar grains, transfer to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Start on medium for 1 minute with cream of tartar, salt, and flavoring added. Increase to high until stiff peaks form.
  4. Pipe & Bake: Pipe the meringue onto the prepared sheet in your desired shapes. Bake for 60 minutes, then turn off the oven but leave the meringue inside until completely cold (ideally overnight).
  5. Store: Store in a ziplock bag at room temperature for up to two weeks.


  • Baking Time: Ensure your meringue bakes long enough to avoid stickiness.
  • Extra Sparkle: For extra fun, add a bit of edible glitter to make them sparkle!


  • Q: Can I use artificial sweeteners?
    A: Yes, but you may need to adjust the amount and baking time as artificial sweeteners behave differently than sugar.
  • Q: How long do they stay fresh?
    A: They can be stored at room temperature in a ziplock bag for up to two weeks, maintaining their crispiness.
