How to make Christmas Tree Cookies:

  • Place bowl over boiling water on the stove. Whisk vigorously until sugar dissolved and there are no more sugar granules visible. Remove from heat and whisk in the extract.
  • Using the whisk attachment on a stand mixer, mix on medium high until egg whites become bright white but still runny.
  • Add in food coloring to the color you want and continue to beat to form stiff peaks.
  • Pipe cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Sprinkle with sprinkles
  • Bake for 2 hours. After 2 hours, turn off oven, open door slightly and let sit in the oven an additional 2 hours.
  • Place the star sprinkles on top with a tiny dab of frosting.
  • Enjoy!

How to pipe the Christmas Trees Meringues Cookies:

Place mixture into piping bag with large star tip. With a circular motion while squeezing the meringue out of the bag build the trees. You want to pipe in a circle while layering the meringue up and on top of itself. Make cookies about 1 inch in width, 2 inches high and place 1 inch apart on baking sheet.

How do you know when meringues are done?

They are done when you can easily lift them off the parchment and the bottoms are dry. They should not be brown. Make sure to cook them at a low temperature for a long time.

This was my first time making these easy meringue cookies they came out perfectly! They are sooo easy, you can do it too! Check back next week because December will be jam packed with more treats!

  1. Is the almond extract for flavor only, or does it serve an additional purpose? I’m wondering if another flavor extract would affect the outcome. My daughter is allergic to nuts and I’d like to use a substitute of possible.


  2. These are great Iā€™m going to try them! Why do you have to put the star sprinkle on at the end? Can you just place them on the tip of the peak before baking?

    1. You know, I really don’t know why I did that. It was my first time making meringues so maybe I was nervous about it, LOL. It would probably be fine to bake with it, but I’m not positive. Thanks for asking!


  3. Your recipe is great and easy to follow. This is my first time making meringues cookies and they are beautiful. I am adding them to my standup gingerbread houses. They are in the oven now with one hour to go. Thank you!!!

    1. YAY! I’m so glad they are working out for you. I would love to see your houses when everything is done! You can tag me on instagram @thissillygirlskitchen if you plan on sharing, thanks again!


  4. I just made these the night before Christmas eve, and they are so cutie cute!! Mine are a litte different due to piping tip I had, but still worked, an cute. Taste great. Did almond flavor an vanilla paste one’s and they’re both great. Thanks for the inspiration and recipes.
