Step 2: Now you’ll have to beat eggs until they become white and foamy. Then mix in 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter until soft peaks form. Make sure to set the timer for 7 minutes. The, slowly add in sugar a bit at a time taking the entire 7 minutes to do so.

Step 4: On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pipe yellow dots of meringue about an inch across. Holding the icing bag vertical. Just press gently until you get a nice shape release pressure then pull up. I have found that these bake best when they are no bigger then and inch wide and an inch tall.

Step 5: Add a little stars and sprinkles to get the Christmassy effect :) I used red and green sprinkles and a little red star I put on the top of the tree.

Step 6: Now bake at a very low heat (about 150-170) for about two hours to two and a half hours until they are nice and crisp. I just checked on mine every so often to make sure they haven’t started to brown :) Enjoy!
