Star Mint Meringues

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a very large mixing bowl beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar, about 1/2 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold in extract (mixture may soften slightly).
  2. Using a new small paintbrush, brush stripes of red food coloring on the inside of a decorating bag fitted with a 1/2-inch open-star tip. Carefully spoon egg white mixture into decorating bag. Pipe 2-inch stars 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake about 1-1/2 hours or until meringues appear dry and are firm when lightly touched. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
