Prep Time 8 hours
Author Randa Derkson

Ingredients

Christmas Meringues

  • 6 tbsps Naturegg Simply Egg Whites room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: food coloring of choice

Eggnog Buttercream

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 tsp rum extract

Instructions

Christmas Meringues

    Preheat over to 225 F.

    • Add the egg whites and turn your mixer you high until they're foamy.
    • Add the brown sugar and cinnamon, beat for 1 minute.
    • Add cream of tartar and optional food coloring.
    • Beat until stiff peaks form. I did this on high for ten minutes, on and off.
    • Spoon into a piping bag (or in my case, reusable bag) and pipe onto a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake for 2 1/2 hours and then shut the oven off (do not open the door) and let the Christmas Meringues sit and dry out for 6-8 hours.

    Eggnog Buttercream

    • Add the butter and sugar to a large bowl (or to your stand mixer). Beat for 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the eggnog and flavoring. Whip on high for 5-6 minutes, pausing to push down any frosting that raises up on the sides.
    • Add to piping bag.

    Assembly

    • Gently remove the meringues off the parchment paper and pipe the buttercream on to the back. Top with another meringue.
