Peppermint Clouds Meringue Holiday Cookies by Angie Cornelius

Chicago, IL, US


Nothing reminds me of winter holidays more than the scent and flavor of peppermint. Even our Christmas tree is a collection of red and white swirled ornaments and lights in honor of peppermint. The peppermint flavor of these meringues is in the crushed candy cane topping; for a little extra holiday color you can also crush green striped mint candies. You can also add a very small amount of peppermint extract to the meringues but do it sparingly; too much can affect how the meringue sets up.
