Meringue Cookies

Does it count as a dumpling if it's a cookie?  Oh well.  I made them anyways!  I love meringue cookies.  Since they are mostly just egg whites I like to think they are a better cookie option than most ;)


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees
  2. Place the egg whites into a large bowl and turn on your electric mixer until the egg whites are fluffy
  3. With the mixer running, add the sugar a tiny bit at a time
  4. Keep the mixer on high until mixture forms stiff peaks
  5. Using your spatula, fold in the vanilla and vinegar
  6. Place small spoonfuls of meringue onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  (I tried to do the squeegie bag style, but I am clearly an amateur pâtissier, so I just used a spoon)
  7. Smooth out each cookie with the back of the spoon
  8. Bake for 40 minutes, and then turn the oven off and leave inside for 1 hour.  Do not open the door!
  9. Remove from oven and enjoy!!
