  • Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar and lemon juice, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.

  • Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls egg mixture onto a baking sheet, making little peaked mounds.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned and dry on the outside yet soft and no longer gooey on the inside, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For Christmas, mom would add a small drop of red or green food coloring to lightly tint these. Seasonal sprinkles can also be added before baking.
