Tinker Bell’s Meringue Cookies
- 4 egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar
- Piping bag
- Large coupler
- Large star piping tip
- Clear sprinkles
Preheat oven to 200° F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Whip 4 room-temperature egg whites in a mixer. Add cream of tartar, then continue whipping on high until stiff peaks form.
Lower to medium and add powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Whip on high until stiff peaks form.
Place meringue in a piping bag (with coupler and tip), and pipe onto your parchment paper-lined cookie sheet into a wing shape. Using the large star piping tip, form the shape of each side of the wing starting from the bottom to the top — one wing at a time.
Then add sprinkles on top.
Place in the oven for 3 hours, or until they’ve dried. Check on them throughout to make sure they remain white. Let cool.
