Wouldn’t these be pretty on a plate for your mom? Or grandma?

These are the perfect dessert to make after dinner, cook them, then let them “rest” in the oven overnight. By morning you can package them up and send them off. It’s Teacher Appreciation week, my girls are bringing in little bags for their teachers too! I printed up some quick tags using picmonkey

Meringue Roses {Mother's Day or Teachers Appreciation}

Yield: 60 cookies

Prep Time:6 hours

Cook Time:1 hours 30 minutes


  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 cup caster sugar (or granulated sugar...see note)
  • 1 Tbsp cherry gelatin mix
  • 1 Tbsp lemon gelatin mix
  • 1 Tbsp lime gelatin mix


  1. In mixing bowl (that is completely DRY), beat egg whites until foamy, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add vinegar and corn starch and continue to beat for another minute until soft peaks form.
  3. In a slow stream, add sugar. Beat for about 4-5 minutes until stiff peaks form.
  4. Divide meringue into thirds. Beat in one color of jello to each third. I made the green meringue with slightly less, because I was only making leaves.
  5. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Fill pastry bags with meringue (one color in each bag). For the roses, I used the 6S open star tip. Start in the center and make one full circle around to make the rose. Repeat for the pink and yellow.
  6. For the green meringue I used tip 70 to make the leaf. Just make a straight line, wiggling a little bit and lift straight up at the end of the leaf. Repeat until done.
  7. Place baking sheets in 200 degree oven for 90 minutes. Turn oven off and leave in oven for 6 hours or overnight. I prefer to just make these in the evening after dinner, cook for the 90 minutes, then turn the ovens off and leave them in there overnight. Package in airtight containers (or ziploc) and enjoy!
  • If you can't find caster sugar, you can process your granulated sugar in a food processor or blender to get it extra fine.

    By gelatine do you mean jelly? As in the powder kind?
