meringue cookie hearts

4 egg whites
2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar

pink gel food coloring (if you want them to be pink!)

 

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Sprinkle in sugar a little at a time, while continuing to whip at medium speed. Add a tiny drop of food coloring if using. When the mixture becomes stiff and shiny stop mixing, and transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag. Pipe the meringue out onto the prepared baking sheet using a large round tip or star tip in a heart shape.
Place the meringues in the oven and place a wooden spoon handle in the door to keep it from closing all the way. Bake for 2 1/2 hours, or until the meringues are dry, and can easily be removed from the pan. Allow cookies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature.
