Simple & Cute Sakura-Coloured Meringue Cookies

These melt-in-the-mouth meringue cookies look so cute in pink.

Ingredients: 1 baking tray's worth

Egg white
Granulated sugar or sugar
20 g
Red food coloring
as needed


1. Whisk the egg white with a hand mixer until peaks begin to form when you lift the mixer out of the mixture. Add the sugar and keep whisking until you get very stiff peaks.
2. Add a very tiny amount of red food colouring into the mixture and mix it in to get a pale pink colour.
3. Add the mixture from Step 2 to a piping bag fitted with a star-shaped nozzle and pipe out onto a baking try lined with parchment paper. Bake for 60 minutes in an oven preheated to 110°C.
4. Once baked, store these meringues in a jar or similar along with a pack of desiccant to keep them dry.

Story Behind this Recipe

I used a load of egg yolks for a different cookie recipe so I needed to make something to use up the leftover egg whites.
I decided to make them pink for that extra cuteness.
