  • Increase to medium-high speed and continue to whip adding 1 tablespoon at a time until all sugar used and egg whites are shiny and hold a stiff peak.  Lastly, beat in the vanilla extract and whip just enough to incorporate. Using a large rubber spatula gently fold in dry ingredients into the whipped egg whites in four additions until well blended. The mixture will deflate a little bit, so fold quickly and gently to minimize the deflation.

  • Transfer meringue mixture in a prepared piping bag with any type of tips you like or you can simply drop the meringue mixture by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets spacing them a couple inches.  For a shiny finish dust the tops lightly with powdered sugar before baking. Bake at 200F for about 50-65 minutes without opening the oven door. Remove from the oven and allow meringues to cool down before peeling off from the parchment paper to avoid breaking these fragile cookies.
