The Cutest Paper Shredder

Judah's favorite thing right now is to tear up paper. He is pretty good about not sticking it in his mouth, he just loves the crinkle and crunch that paper makes in his hands.
And isn't his outfit so sweet? A friend picked it up for him in Australia.

The Meringue Recipe:

  • Whites from 3 large eggs at room tempature
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, preferably super fine (I used regular sugar, they tasted fine!)
  • 1 tsp spearmint extract or 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • Food coloring (I suggest GREEN!)
  • Chocolate chips (my aunt suggested using mint chips next time, yum!)

  1. Heat oven to 200F and prepare two baking sheets with nonstick foil (I used one big sheet)
  2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl with mixer on medium speed until peaks form when beaters are lifted.
  3. Gradually add sugar. Beat on high for 3-4 minutes, scrapping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula, until stiff, shiny peaks form. Beat in extract and a few drops of food coloring. Add desired amount of chocolate chips and stir.
  4. Spoon onto prepared baking sheet - recipe says it makes 24 meringues, if you want a reference point :)
  5. Bake 3 - 3 1/4 hours until meringue is dry and crisp all the way through. Cool and then eat!
They can be stored in an airtight container at cool room temperature for up to 2 months.
