Christmas Meringues with Eggnog Buttercream
The Bewitchin Kitchen
Naturegg Simply Egg Whites
+ 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
Optional: food coloring of choice
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.
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.
Gently remove the meringues off the parchment paper and pipe the buttercream on to the back. Top with another meringue.
