Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Move rack to center of the oven. Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil.
  2. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Add the jello powder 2 tablespoons at a time while continuing to beat. The meringue should form stiff peaks.
  3. Drop mixture onto lined cookie sheets and bake in preheated oven 1 hour. Turn oven off and allow meringues to stand in unopened oven at least an hour.
  4. Store in tightly sealed containers.
  5. NOTE: If you prefer, substitute regular sugar for the jello.
  6. Chopped drained maraschino cherries, mini-chocolate chips or chopped nuts may be mixed into the batter.
