Servings: 18

Prep Time: 20 min.

Cook Time: 2 hr.

Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 drops red food coloring
  • 1 tube (4.25 oz.) black or brown decorating frosting

Supplies

  • 2 cookie sheets
  • Parchment paper or aluminum foil
  • Electric mixer
  • Gallon-size plastic resealable bag or pastry bag fitted with plain �-in. round tip

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  2. Step 2

    Bring 1 inch of water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Combine the egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt in a large bowl. Place the bowl over the simmering water, whisking constantly, until the mixture is warm and the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Remove the bowl from the simmering water and beat with an electric mixer on high until thick and glossy, about 3 minutes. Stir in the food coloring and vanilla extract. Spoon the mixture into the plastic bag or pastry bag. If using a plastic bag, snip off a 1/4-inch corner from the bag. Pipe 3 1/2- by 2-inch ovals on the prepared cookie sheet. Pipe a mound on one of the short ends as her snout and pipe two ears on the opposite end. Repeat with the remaining meringue about 2 inches apart. Bake pans, rotating half way through baking, until firm and dry, about 2 hours. Turn off oven and let stay over night for optimum crispness.

  4. Step 4

    Gently peel the meringues from the paper or foil. Pipe mouth, nostrils, and eyes with the brown frosting to make Olivia.
