Meringue Wreaths

Usually, our 6 year old grandson spends Christmas day with his maternal grandparents. When it was learned she would be having her Christmas dinner and such a few days later, we asked him if he would like to spend Christmas day with us instead of the usual few hours. His response was "Well it sounds good to me grandma but I'll have to discuss it with Nana first".

Since this is the Christmas month, from now untill Dec. 22, I will try and post a Christmas related recipe. It could be anything from desserts to salads to a whole turkey dinner. I won't be posting anything here from the 22nd till after the first of the year so that I may spend time with family and friends.

Now todays recipe

While this recipe may take practice to get it right, it is well worth the effort. Meringues are light and tasty but if they are rushed when baking, they will crack.


  • 2 Egg whites

  • 1 Tsp. lemon juice

  • 1/4 Tsp. cream of tartar

  • 2/3 Cup of instant dissolving fruit/berry sugar

In a small bowl, beat egg whites with lemon juice until foamy. Add the cream of tartar. Slowly mix in sugar, about 1 Tbs. at a time. Beat until it doesn't feel gritty. Line your baking sheet with wax paper then scoop meringue onto paper making small rings.

Bake it at 250 degrees F. for 1-1/4h rs or until they are firm. When firm turn off oven and leave them in oven for 1 more hr.
