I am definitely going to try this one when I get my teeth done.
½ cup of Sugar
¼ tsp of Cream of Tartar
¼ tsp of Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp of Peppermint Extract
Gender appropriate gel Food Coloring
1 pinch of Salt
3 large Egg Whites
Preheat the oven to a 225˚F and line a baking dish with parchment paper.In a metal or glass bowl, beat egg whites with the salt and cream of tartar on medium speed. When soft peaks are starting to form, add in the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. When the meringue mix starts to stand on its own with glossy-looking peaks, it’s ready and you can now pour in the extracts. To make the meringue swirl kisses, take a piping bag and paint the insides with some colored stripes. Pipe out the meringue through ½ inch tip and make rounds with diameter of 1 ½ inches. Be sure to leave 1 inch of space between the rounds. Put it in the oven and let the swirls bake for 1 hour. Turn it off after that but leave the meringues in the oven with the doors closed for another hour to completely dry out. Store in an airtight container
5 medium apples
1/3 cup of frozen cranberries, thawed and chopped
¼ cup of packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons of walnuts, chopped
¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
Core the apples, but leave the bottoms intact. Peel the top third of each apple, and place in a 5-quart slow cooker. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spoon the mixture into each of the apples. Cover, and cook for 4 to 5 hours.
