Previously I posted about one of my favorite Christmas cookies, Meringue Cookies. I decided to try something a little different with the basic recipe and make Lemon Meringues. I still have not decided which one I like better. But regardless to which ones you choose to make they both go great with a spot of tea.
Lemon Meringue Cookies
2 egg white at room temperature
1/2 t cream of tarter
1/4 t lemon extract
1/2 t lemon zest
1/2 c sugar
Beat egg whites to a soft peak, while beating add cream of tarter and lemon extract. Add lemon zest. Slowly add sugar. Pipe onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 1 hr 20 min at 200. Turn off oven (don’t open the door) and leave in for 1 hour to crisp.
