The Ingredients List:
- Egg whites
- Strawberry gelatin powder ( ex: Jello)
- Cream of tartar + salt
How to Make Strawberry Meringues:
- First, bring your egg whites to room temperature. This helps in bringing your egg whites together better.
- Next, start whipping your egg whites. Start at medium speed and use the whisk attachment with your electric mixer. Add in salt and cream of tartar and whip until soft peaks form.
- Then, gradually start adding in your sugar and gelatin powder. Don’t dump it all in at once. Your egg whites could deflate.
- Continue whipping until stiff peaks form. To test, remove your whisk from the mixer. If the egg whites stand up straight on the whisk and are glossy in color, you are good to go.
- Scoop or pipe the meringue on top a prepared baking sheet. They should be about 2 tablespoons of meringue.
- Bake in a preheat oven for 1 hour. Then, turn off the oven and let them sit in the oven for at least one hour. Don’t open the oven at this time. Check them after one hour to feel their texture. If the tops are fully dried, remove them. If not, leave in for additional time.
