One of my favorite cookies are these divinely light, seriously sweet, and satisfying Valentines Meringue Cookies. This recipe has long been a family favorite. And a great way to celebrate love with treats this Valentines Day.
Heart shaped meringue cookies
These Valentines Meringue Cookies are gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free if you need any of that. Of course, they are lovely for those without allergies too, but these are safe for almost everyone. They are a great choice for a Valentine’s Day Party. You can also use them as cupcake toppers or cake decorations.
A few chocolate chips and a handful of chopped almonds give luscious flavor to these heart-shaped Meringue Cookies as well. You can make many different variations of them. These cookies make a pretty Valentines treat or a thoughtful gift to celebrate a special occasion.
You probably already have all the ingredients on hand too. So let’s get some whipped up. You can’t beat it. Wakka wakka.
Piped onto parchment in the shape of small hearts, they are also pretty. They make a lovely homemade treat.
Chewy meringue cookies
The best part about meringues is the chewy inside while the outside is crisp and lovely. They just melt in your mouth as you chew them up. I can’t get enough. You can use sprinkles to decorate or whatever you like, we did sprinkles this time for fun.

- 3 egg whites
- ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup granulated white sugar
- Red food dye
- Red, white, pink sprinkles
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit.
- Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In bowl add the egg whites and cream of tartar together
- Whisk or use a hand mixer to make the egg whites frothy.
- Once frothy, you will slowly add in the sugar while mixing with the hand mixer. Do this either with one teaspoon of sugar at a time or with a slow continuous pour.
- Once you have added all the sugar, add in the vanilla.
- Blend at medium high speed for about 10 minutes until you have a marshmallow-like soft meringue that barely holds a peak.
- Split this mixture in half, dying one half with red food dye.
- Place the two colors into piping bags and cut the tips.
- Place both piping bags in a third empty piping bag to create a blend of the two colors.
- On the prepared parchment baking sheet, pipe out heart cookies and top with sprinkles.
- Place in the oven for 1 hour.
- Let cool when removing from the oven and you will have a firm, but soft to bite meringue cookie!

- This meringue is different from the regular cookies, which would create a fluffy crunchy texture, whereas this one creates a fluffy soft and chewy texture. This is due to the length of beating the egg white and sugar
- Crack the eggs one at a time separately to ensure no egg yolk is accidentally added. That will ruin the integrity of the meringue.
Can you freeze meringue cookies
You can freeze meringue cookies. Make sure they are completely cool and freeze them on the baking sheet. Then once fully frozen, remove from sheet and store in an airtight container for up to 10 months.
