Aren’t these meringue cookies adorable? I saw the idea on Martha Stewart to make them striped. LOVED it! So easy too.
Here’s the downside to meringue cookies. They are so light, and melt in your mouth, it’s easy to eat a whole bowl without feeling full.
Here’s the upside to meringue cookies, they are made with egg whites so it’s good protein. Well, and sugar, but c’mon, I’m trying to be positive here!
These are so easy to make, and look great on a cookie tray. Enjoy!
