Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies
I love these Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies – they are one of the best recipes for Christmas desserts. To make these cute cookies, start by making the meringue base by mixing egg whites, sugar and a pinch of tartar. Add mint extract and beat some more. Once the mixture is translucent, add green food coloring and beat again. The mixture is ready when you remove the whisk attachment and it leaves a curled but stiff peak.
When the meringue is ready, pipe the cookies onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 2 hours. As the meringue trees cool, make chocolate stars by placing melted chocolate in a pastry bag with a small hole. Pipe melted chocolate into a star shape and place in the refrigerator to chill until ready to use. To assemble, squeeze a small bit of cooled melted chocolate on top of each meringue and place a chocolate star in it. I am sure this recipe will be flying to the top of your Christmas Cookie Recipes this year!
