It’s Christmas week and it’s time to make yummy treats for the family! Today, I’m sharing with you this Christmas Tree meringue recipe I found on this blog !
It seems easy to make and will be great gifts to offer to family and friends!
Here is what you will need:
– 4 Egg Whites
– 1 1/3 Cup Sugar
– 1/4 TSP Salt
– 1/4 TSP Cream of Tarter
– Green coloring
– Parchment Paper
– Pipping Bag
– Large Round Tip
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 150 – 170 degrees. Now in the bowl of an electric mixer, separate egg yolks from egg whites.
Step 2: Now you’ll have to beat eggs until they become white and foamy. Then mix in 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter until soft peaks form. Make sure to set the timer for 7 minutes. The, slowly add in sugar a bit at a time taking the entire 7 minutes to do so.
Step 3: Now time to make you trees. Fill piping bags with meringue using large round tip.
Step 4: On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pipe yellow dots of meringue about an inch across. Holding the icing bag vertical. Just press gently until you get a nice shape release pressure then pull up. I have found that these bake best when they are no bigger then and inch wide and an inch tall.
Step 5: Add a little stars and sprinkles to get the Christmassy effect I used red and green sprinkles and a little red star I put on the top of the tree.
Step 6: Now bake at a very low heat (about 150-170) for about two hours to two and a half hours until they are nice and crisp. I just checked on mine every so often to make sure they haven’t started to brown Enjoy!
