What are Meringue Cookies?

Meringue cookies are a type of dessert or sweet treat which is made from whipping egg whites, and typically mixing with sugar. However, to keep the recipe low in carbs, we use cream of tartar to form stiff peaks and ChocZero Vanilla syrup or powdered erythritol to give them a sweet flavor. Meringues can be made with a variety of flavors! The most common meringue flavor is lemon. However, in this recipe we make our Ghost Meringue Cookies either vanilla flavored or just slightly sweetened. They have a sweet taste with an airy, crispy and light texture.

Meringues are baked at a low temperature for a long time until the outside gets crispy and the texture on the inside becomes slightly chewy. A good meringue would melt in your mouth and is lighter than a feather!

Keto Meringues

Keto meringue cookies always look really fancy compared to other types of cookies you can make at home and everyone seems to think that they are very difficult to make. However, they only require very few ingredients and can be prepared in a short amount of time! The hardest part of making these cookies is the waiting time! When they are taken out of the oven, the meringues will be soft. They should be left out for some time to cool down and then they will crisp up.

Our keto meringue cookie recipe is very low in carbs and also dairy free as they don’t even contain any butter. This means that they can be served to anyone who is intolerant or allergic to dairy. They are also a keto nut free cookie recipe as they don’t contain any almond flour. Instead of having to use sugar which would make the recipe higher in carbs, we use ChocZero Vanilla Syrup or powdered erythritol which still give the cookies a sweet taste. The beauty of these keto meringue cookies is that even if you end up having around 4 it still adds up to around 2 g of net carbs which would still fit within a low carb diet.

Importance of Stiff Peaks for Meringues

In order to form stiff peaks, use fresh eggs and only the egg whites need to be used to make meringues. Egg yolks can be kept to use for other recipes. The egg whites should then be whipped fast and for a long time. Make sure that the bowl is clean and dry before you start beating the eggs and it would be best if the bowl is made of glass or metal, not plastic. Moreover, the cream of tartar we use in this recipe helps the egg whites to form stiff peaks, as well as for them to maintain their shape as it acts as a stabilizer.
