3 large egg whites

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp strawberry extract

red and maroon gel paste food coloring*


Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place egg whites and sugar in a heat proof bowl which pairs with an electric stand mixer, and set bowl over a pot of simmering water. Whisk mixture constantly until sugar dissolves and mixture is warm to the touch, about 3 minutes. Mix in salt and cream of tartar. Transfer bowl to electric stand mixer, add in strawberry extract and whip mixture on medium-high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form and mixture has nearly cooled, about 7 minutes. Meanwhile, using a small paintbrush, paint 3 vertical stripes of the gel food coloring along the inside of a large pastry bag fit with a 1/2-inch round tip. Fill pastry bag with meringue mixture and pipe 1 3/4-inch circles onto Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until meringues are dry to the touch, while crisp on the outside and tender and soft on the inside . Allow to cool and transfer to an airtight container. *I did about 3 parts red to 2 parts maroon and mixed with paintbrush in a small bowl.
