Any edible Christmas tree? Come on....you can't pass these up! They are light and fluffy, as a meringue should be, with that great crunch on the outside. There is also a slight hint of almond from the extract that sends these trees over the edge!
4 egg whites, room temperature
1 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
2 "dots" green food coloring
1/8 tsp. almond extract
Sprinkles (and stars for a tree topper)
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. With the whisk attachment, whisk the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in an electric mixer for around 5 minutes until peaks start to form. Add the almond extract and green coloring and whip for another minute or so.
