Ingredients

  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 1 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 TSP Salt
  • 1/4 TSP Cream of Tarter
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Pipping Bag
  • Large Round or Star Tip

Instructions                   

  • Preheat oven to 150-170 degrees (My oven only went down to 170).
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer separate egg yolks from egg whites. Let the eggs come to room temp.
  • Beat eggs until white and foamy. Mix in 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter until soft peaks form. Set timer for 7 minutes. Slowly add in sugar a bit at a time taking the entire 7 minutes to do so.
  • Add in the green food coloring and mix on low until combined.
  • Fill piping bag with meringue using a large round tip (I used Wilton #1M).
  • On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pipe in a swirl round and upwards until you get a Christmas tree shape. If you use a round tip (like a Wilton #2A) hold the icing bag vertical and just press gently until you get a nice shape release pressure then pull up. I have found that these bake best when they are no bigger then and inch wide and an inch tall. Layer 2 smaller dots on top of each other. Pull up as you release pressure to get a nice little tip on the top dot.

  • Now bake at a very low heat (about 150-170) for about two hours to two and a half hours until they are nice and crisp. I just checked on mine every so often to make sure they haven’t started to brown. Every oven is different. I ended up baking mine a little longer than 2 hours and then turned the oven off and left them to cool there overnight.
