Meringue Bones

On the Menu Today~
Meringue "Bones"

Your little ghosts and goblins will be spooked
when they see these delicious "bloody bones."
Like all meringue cookies,
these "bloody bones" are light, crisp, airy and delicious~

Meringue Bones

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • red food coloring, optional, (to give your "bones" blood drops)
Cooking Directions
  1. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Place mixture in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag, cut off a small corner of bag (you can also use a pastry bag with a round decorating tip)
  3. On parchment-lined baking sheet, pipe meringue into a 3-inch log, pipe two 1-balls on opposite sides of each end of the log. Repeat with remaining meringue.
  4. Bake at 225ยบ for 1 1/2 hours or until firm. Remove to wire racks.
  5. Drop droplets of red food coloring on bones to represent blood.
  6. Store in an airtight container
