This is my version of moon rock meringues.  So simple to make and are a fun addition to your celebration.  I went with black gel color because of our Over The Moon party.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees

3 egg whites    1/4 tsp. cream tartar    3/4 cup fine sugar

* Mix eggs until foamy, add sugar slowly & cream tartar

Once mixture has a shine to it and peaks you are ready to add it to your piping bag.   If you are adding color you will need to use a gel food color and a food safe paint brush.  Brush as many lines in the bag as desired.  Then fill your mixture into the bag.  Line pan with parchment paper and pipe cookies to the size you want them.  I used a star tip for mine. 

Cook for 3 hours, let cool and store in an airtight container until you are ready to serve.  Eat as cookies or use to decorate cupcakes & cakes.

Lime Cups

Little Lime Cup Pies



Instead of making this as one pie I did individual pies

These were delightful.  One word of caution, the gelatin sets up fast and then can be a challenge to get rid of tiny pieces.  Also, I used fresh squeezed lime juice.  I feel that is always better than a bottle. Top with non-dairy whip topping and decorate.  Yummy little treat!
