3 egg whites
2/5 tsp salt
2/5 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar
3 candy canes , one green, one red, crushed


1 Heat your baking oven to 225 degreesF. Cover your baking sheet with cooking foil.
2 In a large bowl, stir egg whites until foamy. Mix in salt and cream of tartar, beat until little peaks form.
3 Mix in the sugar, slowly – 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff and smooth.
4 Spoon meringue into a pastry bag or ziploc plastic bag. When using a disposable plastic bag, nip a 1 inch hole in a corner.
5 Squeeze 1 1/2 inch kisses of meringue onto the ungreased, foil lined cooking sheets. Now sprinkle half of the cookies with crushed red candy canes and the remaining cookies with green candy canes.
6 Bake for 1.5 to 2 hours or until dry, they should not be browned. Let the cookies completely cool before removing from the pan.
7 Enjoy your dessert and place in an airtight container.
