Easy Homemade Vanilla Meringue Cookie Recipe
I decided to try my hand at a vanilla meringue cookie recipe after my mother once brought over to our house a box of meringues. My children finished the box before I had a chance to even taste them, so I decided to try and whip up a batch of vanilla meringue cookies myself. How difficult could it be? Not difficult at all. In fact, making meringues was so easy, I whipped up a second batch afterward. Total success!
For one of my daughter’s birthdays, I baked a batch of good homemade vanilla meringue cookies, the kids all finished them super quickly and asked for more! Since the yummy meringue cookies weren’t ready yet, I told them that they’re welcome to stop by for more in a few hours.
This easy vanilla meringue cookie recipe is a nice gift idea when going to friends- put them in a nice glass jar, and you’re all set!
