How To Make Pecan Meringue Cookies

Easy pecan meringue cookies with only 3 main ingredients. You’ll only need pecans, sugar, and egg white and you’ll have a delicious holiday dessert.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
cool Time: 3 hours
Total: 3 hours 45 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1cupwhole pecans,preferably lightly roasted for 8 to 10 minutes at 250 degrees F (120°C)
  • 3egg whites
  • pinchsalt
  • ¾cupsugar,150g
  • 1tspvinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  2. Place pecans in a zipper baggie and beat them with a wooden spoon or roll over them with a rolling pin to break them into small pieces. Set aside.

  3. Put egg whites into a spotlessly clean standup mixer bowl. Add the salt. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks start to become visible and the egg white bubbles are very small and uniform for about 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. Increase the speed to medium-high, and slowly add the sugar, a couple of tablespoons at a time, to the egg whites. Continue to whip the eggs and sugar for a few minutes.

  5. Then add the vinegar to the bowl. Increase speed to high and whip the egg whites until they fluff up and become glossy, and stiff peaks form when the whisk is lifted for 4 to 5 minutes.

  6. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the pecan pieces.

  7. Drop by teaspoons onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

  8. Put the cookies sheet in the 300 degrees F oven, close the door and lower the heat to 250 degrees F. Bake them for 25 minutes at 250 degrees F, then turn the oven off.

  9. Leave them in the oven for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. If they are a little marshmallowy or chewy on the inside, just let them dry out for a few more hours.
