Start by adding your egg whites to the bowl and whisk on medium speed until foamy- about 1-2 minutes. Then you will add your cream of tartar.
Whisk Egg Whites
Whisk the cream of tart in for another minute or two. Then add the vanilla extract- the mixture will look brown but don't worry.
Add Vanilla and Cream of Tartar
Keep whisking on high until you reach stiff peaks.
Once the meringue batter is ready add it to a piping bag fitted with a tip. A wilton 1m works great or a plain round tip.
Add to a Piping Bag
You can pipe the meringues in any shape you like. Just make sure they are consistent in size- this will help them bake evenly.
Pipe and Bake
Once the meringues are baked turn the oven off & let them dry in the oven overnight or at least 8 hours. Then enjoy!
