Mint Meringue Kisses

These cute and festive Meringue Kisses willbe sure to please you and your guests this Christmas!  We just made them today, because my Mom had seen this post a couple weeks ago.  So we made a couple of adjustments and came up with these!  Yum!  :)

Mint Meringue Kisses:
6 tsp. Meringue Powder
1/2 c. plus 1 T. Water

1/4 t. Mint Extract
1/4 t. Cream of Tartar
Pinch of salt
3/4 c. Sugar
Red/Green Food coloring, optional
Paint brush/piping bag/mixer
Wax/Parchment Paper

In a mixer whip together meringues powder, water, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form.  Then add sugar and continue to beat on high until stiff peaks form.  Fold in mint flavoring carefully.  Paint stripes alternating green and red in piping bag if desired.  Then scoop meringue "dough" into piping bag.  Dot onto baking sheet and set in 225 degree oven to dry for about 90 minutes.  (See this post for more detail and tut.)
