  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine white sugar and egg whites in a saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring constantly, until well blended and heated through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour white sugar and egg white mixture into a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.
  4. Scoop beaten egg whites into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe into small swirls onto a baking sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 15 minutes. Turn off oven and keep baking sheet inside as oven cools, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Add food coloring to the egg whites in step 2 if desired.

I don't know if I just did something wrong, but I tried to follow the recipe very closely and they came out as just flavorless blobs of egg whites. Wouldn't make them again.
