Directions

Step 1: Make meringue

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add egg whites, cream of tartar, and Mayan Sea Salt. Beat on medium-high speed until egg whites are foamy. Turn speed down to medium-low and slowly sprinkle in sugar. Turn speed back up to medium-high for 7 to 10 min. until stiff, glossy peaks form.

Step 2: Flavor and pipe

Add in extract of choice and food coloring (if using) and mix until thoroughly combined. Spoon meringue into a piping bag or plastic bag and snip the corner with scissors. Pipe small, bite-sized cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 3: Bake

Bake for 35 to 40 min., then turn off oven without opening the door. Leave meringue cookies in oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven, cool completely, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
