Meringue Bones


Check out these fun Halloween decorations! So easy to make!

Meringue Bones

Ingredients:

3 large egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/8 tsp. salt
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 200F. Line cookie sheet with brown paper bag or parchment.
In a medium sized bowl at high speed, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt till fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar. If the kids are helping, they don't really know what 'gradually beat in the sugar means'. Add vanilla. Place in pastry bag fitted with a medium plain piping tip. If you don't have one of those nifty bags, a plastic zipper bag will do. Just snip off a tiny part of a corner. Pipe 3″ bone shapes onto parchment or brown paper bag. Bake 1 hour until set. Turn off oven, dry in oven 1 hour. Be sure to store in airtight containers or they will become soggy. Yep, they do get soggy...and gross. Makes 4 to 5 dozen small finger-sized bones.
