Mini-meringues – are they a cookie or a candy? Either way, they are simple & delicious! If you’re looking for the easiest, no-fail, guilt-free recipe for your baking list this year, my Cranberry Meringues are exactly what you’re looking for.
To make Cranberry Meringues you will need:
3 large egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, mix together the sugar and cranberries. Pulse until the cranberries are chopped up, but you still want a dry mix.
With a mixer, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold in the sugar/cranberry mix, along with the vanilla. Whip the eggs again, to refluff them (yes, it works.)
Pipe small mounds (about a tablespoon) onto parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil. Put them into the oven, then turn the oven off, letting them sit in there until the oven is cool (2-3 hours) – or overnight. Do not open the oven! When they come out, they will be lightly browned and delicious!
This guilt-free treat is virtually fat-free and has about 35 calories per cookie… does it get any better than that?
