Pink Strawberry Rosette Meringue Cookies have a subtle strawberry flavor and are pale pink in color. The perfect Valentine’s Day cookie is Pink Strawberry Rosette Meringue Cookies. Not only are Pink Strawberry Rosette Meringue Cookies pretty, they taste delicious too. We have made meringue cookies several times but this recipe is different. This recipe calls for adding powdered sugar to the batter making it creamy, sweet and easy to work with.

You can change the look and flavor of these charming meringue cookies by simply changing the extract and food coloring. Pure mint extract and green food coloring would be great for St. Patrick’s Day, pure lemon extract and yellow food coloring for Easter and so on. Let your imagination run wild. We like to use  Watkin’s pure extracts and/or flavorings. Decorate your meringue cookies with your favorite sprinkles or sparkling sugar.

What Does Meringue Mean?

A meringue is a mixture of stiffly beaten egg whites and granulated sugar. In order for the sugar to dissolve completely and therefore produce an absolutely smooth meringue, it must be beaten into the whites a tablespoon at a time. There are three types of meringues; soft meringues, hard meringues and Italian meringues. Each type of meringue has a purpose

Hard Meringue

Piped onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, hard meringues are usually round and can be large or small. Baked at a very low temperature, about 200 degrees, for as long as 2 hours. Meringues are left in a turned-off oven until completely dry. Hard meringues often have a center depression that is filled with ice cream, custard, whipped cream and or fruit. Tiny, bite-size, round meringues are called kisses and eaten as a dessert.
