  • 2 egg whites , room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon Rose Extract
  • Pink food coloring (I used Wilton Pink Icing Color)*


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line one to two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Using a hand mixer or free-standing mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg whites until foamy, approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the Cream of Tartar, food coloring (to your preferred depth of color) and rose extract. While beating the mixture, slowly add sugar while beating egg whites until stiff.
  • Fit a pastry bag with a large to extra large Drop Flower or Open Star tip. Add the meringue to the pastry bag and pipe small dollops, each one inch wide at the base.
  • Turn off the oven. Place cookies in the oven, and leave for 2 hours or until morning. Meringues are ready when they are dry and crunchy.


*A natural alternative to color food is India Tree Dyes available online and at Whole Foods. All colors are derived naturally however I have found when used in a baked recipes the colors often become more muted.
