Lavender Sugar Meringue Cookies

Submitted by: Larissa on April 7, 2011

Obviously, the lavender sugar is pretty strong, but the cookies themselves are SO SWEET, you’ll probably sugar out before the lavender gets you. Violet sugar would work equally well.

   Prep Time: 15 min   Cook Time: 2 hours  

Ingredients

1/4 cup lavender sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
2 egg whites
A pinch of salt
A few dribbles of vanilla extract


Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Set oven racks so you can get in 2 cookie sheets at once.


Start whipping egg whites. Add salt and vanilla. Slowly add sugars, whipping all the while. Continue whipping mixture until stiff-ish.

Place mixture into quart-sized sandwich bag. Snip off corner of bag and pipe mixture onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat. Make cookies no larger than a quarter, otherwise you get gooey centers.

Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours.
