Hello my friends, I’m so excited that my family from Russia is coming to visit me(we plan to spend couple days in DC, then New York and Las Vegas-sounds awesome right?:)I will be taking some time off from blogging, but you’ll see guests post from my beautiful friends, so don’t miss it!
Hello! My name is Stephanie and I write a blog called Pretty and Delectable. Elena invited me to share a holiday recipe with you and I decided on peppermint meringues… a light and simple treat that is perfect for not only the holidays but any time of the year.
Peppermint Meringues (simplified version of this recipe)
3 large egg whites
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
red gel food coloring
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liners. Heat egg whites and sugar in a heat proof bowl over simmering water, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove mixture from heat. Using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, mix on medium high speed until stiff peaks form. Mix in peppermint extract.
Draw lines of red food coloring inside of a pastry bag. Fill bag with egg white mixture and pipe mixture onto baking sheets using either a round (shown here) or star tip. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.
Bake for 90-100 minutes until meringues are firm to the touch, making sure that the edges do not get browned. Cool completely before removing from baking sheets. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading! Hope to see you soon at Pretty and Delectable… I always look forward to meeting new people and discovering new blogs. And for those of you that celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
