Maple Meringues

Posted on: April 21, 2015

These little babies are delicious and not too hard to make. They are light on calories, can be made ahead of time and frozen if preferred. I am going to make mine into nests then serve berries and cream with them, can you say yummy? My grand-kids like them as is, just pop in their mouths! They are corn free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free..pretty much everything free!! here’s how to do it:

Ingredients:

  • 2 egg whites
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar or syrup

Directions:

Thoroughly clean and dry the whisk attachment and bowl of a stand mixer, making sure to remove any and all soap residue.

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk the egg whites and sea salt together until soft peaks form.  Gradually add the maple sugar and continue whisking until you have stiff peaks.

If using a piping bag and pastry tip, add the meringue mixture and pipe small, Tablespoon-size pyramids onto the parchment paper.  Or, you may spoon Tablespoon-size dollops directly on the paper.  The meringues don’t spread or grow much at all as they cook, so there’s no need to leave much room between the cookies.

Sprinkle with additional maple sugar, if desired.

Cook at 225 degrees F for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the cookies to cool with the oven door closed, about three hours or more – even overnight.  Leave out until completely cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
