Pumpkin Meringues

I can’t help making these great treats.  They are so simple and my girls love meringues ~ these are one of our favorites!

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon arrowroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut palm sugar crystals
  • 2 tablespoons organic pumpkin puree
  • orange food coloring (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Whisk egg whites, arrowroot and pumpkin pie spice until medium-firm peaks are formed.  SLOWLY add sugar crystals while continuing to whisk.
  4. Whisk in pumpkin and optional food coloring./li>
  5. Place mixture in a piping tube/bag with a wide tip…or spoon into a gallon plastic bag and cut off the corner tip.  Pipe mixture into mounds onto parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 2 hours. Turn oven off and crack the door, but let meringues remain in the oven and let rest for 30 minutes. Peel parchment paper off the backs of the meringues. Store in an airtight container once completely cooled (otherwise, the heat will steam the the meringues and “melt” them in your container.
  7. Enjoy!

    About how many does this make?

  2. What a clever way to use pumpkin! I look forward to trying these during the holidays!

  3. I wonder if the recipe would work without arrowroot…

    Sounds so good!

  4. These look great! Could I use tapioca flour instead of the arrowroot? Would the consistency be fine, do you think?

  5. That's okay! We're going to try it out, and I'll let you know! : )

  6. Is there a particular reason for using arrowroot instead of the more normal meringue additive cream of tartar? We tried it with the tapioca flour tonight, and not sure if we did not beat the egg whites long enough, but the meringues flattened out and shrunk during baking.
