Valentines Days

Snow Kisses

Serves: makes 50

Ingredients
4 egg whites
2½ cups powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
2 drops red food coloring
Earth Balance butter (for greasing)
Flour, can be gluten-free if need be (for greasing)
Instructions
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
Spread the butter over two baking sheets.
Sprinkle the flour on top until evenly coated. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until fluffy, about five minutes.
Slowly add in the powdered sugar while stirring.
Mix in the vanilla and food coloring.
Using a piping bag with a flower shaped tip, pipe the meringues onto the baking sheets in small circular pieces about the size of a quarter.
Place meringues in oven and bake *with a wooden spoon in the door to keep it open* for 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours, until they are light and airy.
