Aladdin Inspired Dessert – Genie Themed Meringue Cookie

I created an Aladdin inspired dessert in preparation for the NEW Disney live action Aladdin movie coming to theatres May 2019. This genie themed dessert would be perfect for a viewing party or birthday.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites – room temp
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 drops Blue food coloring
  • Purple edible glitter or sanding sugar if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 225.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with silicon mats and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the egg whites, salt and cream of tarter.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat the mixture on high untilsoft peaks begin to form.
  • Gradually add in the sugar a little bit at a time and mixing on high in between each addition. Mixture should have stiff peaks and sugar should be thouroughly dissolved.
  • Fold in the vanilla extract and blue food coloring.
  • Fill a large piping bag with mixture (or zip top bag with corner snipped off) pipe onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • The meringues don’t spread so make sure you have enough room to bake them all at once.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues in the oven to cool (about 2 hours)
  • Dust with glitter if desired.
