Chewy Raspberry Walnut Meringues

The.Good.Neighbor.Cookbook's picture
Nothing says “I love you” like these sweet and chewy meringues. They’re perfect for this Valentine’s Day or when you just want to say, “Welcome” or “Congratulations” or “Let the book discussion begin.” Play with the flavors by switching up the raspberry jam with apricot preserves or orange marmalade.
Ingredients
  Egg whites 3 Large
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Walnut halves 1 Cup (16 tbs), finely chopped
  Pure vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Kosher salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Raspberry jam 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Working with a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or with a hand mixer with a large bowl, beat the egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Increase the speed to high and slowly add the sugar, beating until glossy, stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the walnuts, vanilla, and salt.

Spoon heaping tablespoon–size amounts of batter 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Spoon 1⁄4 teaspoon of jam into the center of each cookie and bake, rotating the sheets halfway through the baking time, until lightly golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets before transferring the meringues to a wire rack.
