2. Peppermint Meringues

2 egg whites (I used 3 because the lg eggs I had seemed small)
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 candy canes, crushed

Beat egg whites until foamy.  Sprinkle with salt & cream of tartar - beat until soft peaks form.  Gradually add in sugar & beat until stiff peaks form.  Drop by small teaspoonfull onto ungreased foil or paper lined cookie sheet.  Sprinkle the crushed candy over top Bake 225 for 1 -1/2 hours (90 min).  Turn off oven and leave cookies in oven with door ajar for at least 1 hour or until cool.  Store in airtight container.  Recipe says 3 dozen - I made them tiny and got almost twice that.   Nice after a meal and pretty on a cookie tray.
