Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Set your lined pan aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, crack your eggs one by one and add your egg whites into it.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat eggs on medium speed. Add lemon juice.
  • Gradually increase the speed to high. Keep mixing while slowly adding sifted sugar.
  • Once you achieve a smooth, white consistency with stiff peaks, add a few drops of red gel food coloring. Continue to mix until color is well combined.
  • Attach your 1M Wilton tip to a piping bag and add your meringue. 
  • Pipe 2-inch meringue cookies heart outlines onto your lined baking pan, keeping them a couple of inches apart from each other.
  • Continue piping out 12-15 heart shapes on your lined cookie sheet (depends on how big you make your hearts as to how many you will have as a result).
  • Fill in all your heart outlines with the remaining meringue mix.
  • Garnish with red sprinkles before baking.
  • Bake your heart meringues for two hours. After two hours, turn off the heat and let sit in the oven for about a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Remove from oven, peel off the parchment paper carefully, and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
