Rhuberry Meringue Cookies

September, 2019

How do you get great colour and fruit flavour in a meringue cookie? Jell-O powder! The flavour combos are endless.

4 egg whites

3/4 cup icing sugar

1 tbsp berry-flavoured Jell-O powder

A pinch of cream of tarter


Preheat oven to 170˚F, and line a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the icing sugar, Jell-O powder and cream of tarter in a small bowl, and set it aside.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whip the egg whites on high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Slowly add the icing sugar mixture while continuing to whip. When the mixture is stiff and glossy, spoon it into a medium-sized Ziplock bag, cut off one of the bottom corners and pipe the mixture into rosettes on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Place in the oven, and bake for 2 hours. Turn the oven off, but leave the meringues inside to cool. When cool, create cookie sandwiches by joining 2 rosettes with a layer of Nutella.
