Meringue Wreaths

Ingredients
  Egg whites 2
  Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
  Cream of tartar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Instant dissolving sugar 150 Milliliter (2/3 Cup)
Directions

In small deep bowl, beat egg whites with lemon juice until foamy.
Add cream of tartar.
Gradually beat in sugar, about 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, beating well after each addition, until stiff shiny peaks form. (A small amount rubbed between fingers should not feel gritty — sugar should be dissolved.)
Pipe small 1-1/2 inch (4 cm) rings onto parchment paper or foil lined baking sheets, or drop batter by teaspoonfuls (5 mL).
Bake in 250°F (120°C) oven for 1-1/4 hours or until firm.
Turn off oven; leave meringues in oven for 1 hour longer. (Meringues can be layered between waxed paper in airtight container and stored for up to 2 weeks.)
