Meringue Cookie Heart Pops Over At Hungry Happenings

Hello!  Before I share some exciting news, I want to say “thank you” to so many who wrote letting me know they tried to leave comments on Monday and couldn’t.  The new site began a migration unexpectedly and I was even off line for awhile.  Not how I wanted to start off.  You can leave comments now but I’ve lost all the comments from the 4 most recent posts and I’m locked out of Feedburner for the time being so I have no idea when the post is set to find its way to your mail box.  Thank you so much for your patience while I work out the tech bugs. So without further ado…

I’m excited to share with you that I’ve been invited by Beth at Hungry Happenings to be a contributor on her blog!  Beth’s talent is an amazing array of the most clever and whimsical treats. You have to visit! 

Because it’s Valentine’s week she asked me to share with her readers my Meringue Heart Pops so I was very happy to.

Meringue Cookie Heart Pops

While I was making Meringue Heart Cookies for a recent post, I thought how cute they would be sandwiched with white chocolate ganache or white candy coating, dipped in colorful sprinkles and placed on a red and white striped straw, so I gave it a try. Won’t they be fun to attach to Valentines? If you’ve made the meringue hearts you only need a few more things to transform them into pops. If you’re using *white chocolate ganache:  1.  Heavy… [Read More]

“Be Still My (Meringue) Heart” Cookies

Chocolate might reign supreme as the sweet choice for Valentine’s Day but if something lighter tickles your fancy, meringue heart cookies just might make your heart go all aflutter. Made with ingredients most of us already have on hand in our kitchens, the ingredients are simple: egg whites, cream of tartar, granulated sugar (either ‘super fine’ or regular), and vanilla.  The pink food coloring for tinting the meringue is optional but soft pink hearts are the language of love on… [Read More]

Meringue Mushrooms

Meringue Mushrooms are a special treat at Christmas time. I’ve usedthem to decorate Buche du Noels but I like to make them to give as gifts because they’re different from the regular holiday cookies. They present nicely in a small decorative basket, a mushroom basket from the store or even wrapped up in a cello bag tied with a festive ribbon. Things needed~1/2 c. egg whites, room temp.
