I added a few drops of peppermint extract when beating the egg whites. We piped them out with a decorating tip. We crushed some peppermints in a bag and then ran them through the food processor for almost powdery bits. I tried the first one too soon (maybe 30 minutes after turning off the oven) -- it wasn't completely dry inside. So I closed the oven and let them sit a few hours. When I came back and tried again, they were perfect! It was my daughter's first time trying meringues. At first she was like, "Meh." But she tried again after dinner and decided she loved them!
These are easy, have a great texture, and are pretty. They feel like a special treat!
