This weekend the weather has felt like a nice warm spring start of with 55 degrees. Chicagoans deserve this kind of warm weather after we brave the cold winter months.
These meringue cookies have a lovely light fluffy and airy texture and are perfect for this lovely warm weather.
This a simple Lemon Meringue Kisses recipe with a fresh red and white combination of colors. I call this simple because these meringue kisses can be made with four simple ingredients: fresh egg whites, cream of tartar, granulated sugar and salt. I chose to dress them up with lemon zest for a fragrant citrus flavor and bright red color.
These cookies can be spooned onto the baking sheet or piped to make them a bit more fancy.
And that's all you need.
These little light air fluff cookies are good as a gift, thank you gift, party favor, or decoration for the top of the cake.
Thank you for stopping by and reading my article.

Note for the recipe
Making a meringue is all about the volume.
*You have to make sure you clean out all of your equipment to ensure there is no grease!. Otherwise, you can't have the tall peak and glossy meringue. I cleaned out my bowl with lemon then wipe it with the paper towel before I start to put egg white in.
**Make sure your egg white is completely free from egg yolk.
***Cream of tartar is creating the pure white color in the meringues.
