Pepermint bark meringue cookies

The recipe adapted from food network recipes/ Emeril lagasee  I just made a change with other ingredients and use pandan paste for a green coloring and chopped peppermint bark and nut crunch for the cookies,the taste and color are perfect. sweet mintty and slightly pandan taste.



Ingredients :
- 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2/3 cup superfine granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pandan paste for green color
- 1 cup chopped pepermint bark chocolate
- 1/2 finely chopped nut crunch



Directions :
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until fluffy but not at all dry. (Be careful not to over beat.) Add the sugar gradually, about 3 tablespoons at a time. When 1/2 of the sugar has been added, add the pandan extract. Continue beating and adding remaining sugar in batches, until all of the sugar is dissolved and the meringue is very shiny and tight. Gently fold in the  chopped peppermint bark and nut crunch. Working one teaspoon at a time, push a teaspoonful of meringue from the tip of 1 teaspoon onto the lined baking sheets, leaving 1-inch of space between cookies. Place baking sheets in the preheated oven and turn the oven off. Leave the cookies (undisturbed) in the oven for at least 2 hours and up to overnight, or until cookies are crisp and dry.
