Meringue wreath/Edible Christmas Ornaments/Sugar-free Meringue cookies/Keto cookies/Low carb cookies
It’s Christmas time! Why not decorate your Christmas tree with some edible ornaments?! Let’s make some meringue Christmas wreaths!
I love meringue cookies, except the fact that they are really sugary. So here, I am posting a recipe of sugar-free meringue cookies! Well, except the sprinkles are not sugar-free 😬 because they were prettier than the keto sprinkles!
Yield: ~ 28 meringue wreaths (2 inch wide)
Egg whites...from 2 large eggs
Erythritol (Swerve)...3 tbsp (powder it as fine as possible using a coffee grinder)
Creme of tartar...1/4 tsp.
Rose extract...2 drops (this extract is very concentrated, normally you can use a tsp. of any other extract)
Make sure that the eggs are at room temperature
Powder the erythritol as fine as possible in a coffee grinder to avoid a gritty texture in the cookies
You can substitute Swerve with granulated sugar if you wish. I have not tried other types of sweeteners. If you do, let me know how the cookies turned out
If you want to flavor your meringue cookies you can use any extract of your choice like Almond, Vanilla,lemon, coconut rose, peppermint etc
Add the egg whites in a clean bowl
Add salt and cream of tartar
Start whisking at low speed for around 20 seconds
Once the egg whites become nice and foam, add the sweetener approximately 1 teaspoon at a time
Whisk for 1 to 2 minutes until medium peaks form
At this point you can add any flavor you like. You can also add in some food color if you wish
Keep whisking till stiff peaks form. This will take approximately 30 seconds more
Fill the meringue into a piping bag
Draw 2 inch circles on the paper and place a parchment paper over it on a baking pan
Pipe little stars using the 1M tip to decorate them (refer to the video)
Erythritol cookies are more brittle than sugar meringue cookies and they turn Beige color faster in the oven
So it is really important to bake them at a lower temperature in the oven and for a longer time
Bake them at 160° fahrenheit for two hours then turn the oven off and leave them inside with the door ajar for two hours to cool down
The cookies come of easily if you scrape or push the parchment paper below it
Try to be gentle when removing the cookies from the parchment paper! They break really easily!
You could also stick two of them together with some melted chocolate!
These meringues will stay totally fine on your tree as long as it's dry or as long as kids are not around 😂
Hope you enjoyed this recipe! Merry Christmas!
