Minty Meringue's

Andes Mints Meringue Cookies
The simple cookie, meringues are a fluffy delight.  Mix in what you like, splash a bit of color and choose your shape.  For these I decided to use my ice cream scoop. 
3 egg whites at room temperature
1/4 tsp. cream tartar
3/4 cup super fine sugar
*Pick your add in color or candy
Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Oven will be set at 200 degrees.  Beat egg whites in a large metal bowl on medium until foamy.  Add your cream of tartar.  Increase speed to high and continue mixing until soft peaks form.  Gradually add sugar.  After about 5 minutes of mixing in your sugar add in any color and or candy you would like. 
Scoop meringue out with your ice cream scoop.  Place as many on your cookie sheets as your able to fit.  Cook in oven for 3 hours or until dry and crisp.  Once cooked, cool meringues for 20 minutes.  Store in airtight container at room temperature.
