Pumpkin Pie Spice Meringues

Audrey had said on her blog here, that she wanted to make these

Well, they were delicious!

Pumpkin Pie Spice Meringues:
1 cup granulated sugar
3 egg whites
1 tsp of vinegar (or cream of tartar. Either one works)
1 tbs pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger)
Tiny dab of orange food coloring (we didn't use this)

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Whip the egg whites until frothy, then slowly add in the sugar.
Then add the vinegar and spices, and continue to whip.
When it gets to soft peaks, add in the food coloring.
Whip whip whip whip whip until they're stiff, glossy peaks. (they'll hold their shape when you lift the whisk straight up, the tip should curl over , but it should be a defined peak)

You can either just put the meringue into a sandwich baggie and cut the tip off and pipe little blobs, or put a nice tip in a pastry bag. We used my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator
Ours were about the diameter of 50 cent pieces.

The baking time will depends on your oven and the size of the meringues. They needed about 2 hours. Generally, they'll take between 1 and 2 hours, but it does depend on their size, and your particular oven.


They were delicious, almost like pumpkin pie!
