Cranberry Meringues

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?

  10. I made these and they didn’t work 🙁
    I remixed the eggs after folding everything in
    and it just turned to soup.
    Any suggestions?

      It might have been the humidity – that seems to happen if it’s too humid outside (weird, I know!)

  11. How much time does they need to cook. it just says put in the oven and then turn it of. Is it imeadiately?
