Healthy Recipe: Meringue Bones with Bloody Berries



1 ½ teaspoons Pure vanilla extract

½ teaspoon Cream of tartar

1 ½ Tablespoon Cornstarch

1 ½ cups Sugar

¾ cup Egg whites, large (room temperature)

Pinch Salt



4 cups Strawberries, sliced

2 cups Raspberries, cleaned

2 Tablespoons Honey



• Preheat oven to 275°F.

• Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

• Portion out vanilla and cream of tartar and set aside.

• In medium bowl, mix cornstarch and sugar.

• Place egg whites in large mixer bowl of standing mixer. Make sure bowl is clean and free of any debris.

Use whip attachment for the whipping of the egg whites.

• Start whipping eggs on low speed while adding cream of tartar and salt, then increase speed to medium

until soft peaks start to form.

• Move speed up to medium high and gradually add sugar and cornstarch mixture.

• Then add in pure vanilla extract and increase speed to high and whip until meringue is glossy and stiff

peaks form. About 4 to 5 minutes.

• Pipe mixture onto prepared baking sheet, making about 20 medium sized “bones”.

• Reduce oven heat to 250°F and bake for about 50-60 minutes. Make sure bones don’t crack or start to

turn tan or brown. Lower heat if this is the case by about 25 degrees.

• Prepare topping while bones are cooking. In a saucepot, add berries and honey. Cook on low-medium

heat, allowing the berries to become juicy. Remove from heat and allow cooling.

• Once cooled, place ¼ of a cup of fruit in a small bowl and serve with one meringue bone.
