Peppermint Kisses Cookies

Peppermint Kisses Cookies

Ingredients:

2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract, to taste
2/3 cup C&H® Granulated Sugar
Red and green food coloring, paste or gel

Directions:

Place egg whites, cream of tartar and peppermint extract in deep mixing bowl. Beat on high setting until whites form soft peaks. Gradually add sugar, 1 tbsp. at a time, continuing to beat on the highest setting, until mixture is shiny and will hold a stiff peak.

Preheat oven to 300°F. Arrange both racks spaced in center of oven—you will be baking two sheets at a time (this time, it's OK to stack!) Line two large baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper. Fit two 10-inch pastry bags with large round tips (we used tip #1A). Fold edge of bag backward, like a cuff, to keep the mouth wide. This will make “stripe painting” a snap. Using small paintbrush, paint several “stripes” of red food color inside one pastry bag. Be sure to start painting inside the tip and carry the stripes up to 2/3 height of the bag. Fill bag with ½ the mixture and immediately pipe “kisses” about ½ inch apart on the lined baking sheet.

Repeat this process, using the remaining pastry bag, green food coloring and remaining egg white mixture. Place both baking sheets in oven together; bake 10 minutes. Turn off oven; allow baking sheets to remain in oven with door closed for additional 30-40 minutes or until crisp, but not browned. Carefully remove “kisses” from baking sheets; store in airtight container at room temperature.
