Madison Area Gluten Intolerance Chapter


2 egg whites at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Beat egg whites and vinegar with a mixer until fluffy. Slowly beat in sugar until the meringue is stiff and forming stiff peaks. Add in cornstarch and vanilla and whisk a little more, being careful not to over-mix. Place meringue into a piping bag and pipe kisses onto parchment paper on a baking sheet (or spoon onto cookie sheet). Donít use insulated cookie sheets. Place in oven for 35-40 minutes and then turn the heat off. Leave the kisses in the oven for another hour, or until completely cool.

(Note: Little star kisses were piped using Wilton decorating tip 2D.)
