Almond Meringue Kisses: The wonderful thing with this recipe, is that this it yields quite a few cookies, (depending on the size you pipe them), so be sure to share them with friends.
Almond Meringue Kisses
I usually make meringue cookies after making tiramisu because I have leftover egg whites. In my tiramisu recipe I use six egg yolks, so of course, I am leftover with six egg whites, hence, that’s how this recipe developed. I have made meringue cookies using smaller amounts of egg whites and I found that I was running out of delicious, delightful cookies too fast.
I have noticed that people really enjoy meringue cookies or in this case, “kisses.” There is something nostalgic about them, people will say they had a relative that made them or they used to get them from some place. It is nice to have food that makes you stop and reminisce about the past. How special is that?
I make meringue cookies fairly often, so I do plan to share some more iterations of the meringue cookie – and there are endless ways to make them 🙂

- Swap out the almond extract with vanilla or your extract of choice.
- You can skip the almonds for sprinkling over the meringue kisses or you can mix them in the meringue itself or you can sprinkle on some and leave the rest plain.
- There is some technique involved in making a meringue, there is a good reference for making a successful meringue on MarthaStewart.com.
The first meringue cookie recipe I tried was off the TheJoyofBaking.com. Those are larger meringue cookies which are great but they get eaten up really fast because they are so good. They also have a great video that takes you step by step, so you get a visual of how to make them. I would advise to watch it, especially if you are new to meringues.
Meringue cookies make a nice accompaniment to tea or coffee.
