Strawberry Heart Meringues



3 egg whites
1/4 tsp. salt
1 package Strawberry Kool-Aid mix
3/4 c. sugar
1 Tbs. white distilled vinegar

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, whip the egg whites and salt together until foamy. Add in the Kool-Aid mix and then the sugar, a small amount at a time. Whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form, and then add in the vinegar and continue to mix for another minute or so. Spoon into a piping bag with your choice of tip. For Valentines day, I piped most of the meringue batter into heart shapes. Bake for 25 minutes in the oven, and then turn the oven off and keep in the oven for another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the parchment with meringues to a wire rack to cool fully. Peel off and store in a container that has venting.
