Yield: 20 cookies

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Baking time: 2 hours


  • 4 large egg whites
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove
  • Extra spices for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add the egg whites to the bowl of a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip on medium-high until the eggs are frothy, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle in the cream of tartar. Increase the speed to high and whip until soft peaks form, about 1 minute.
  3. With the mixer on medium-high, add the sugar about 1 tablespoon at a time. Turn the mixer to high and whip until stiff peaks form, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Fold in the vanilla and spices. Scoop the meringue onto the baking sheet using about 2 generous tablespoons for each cookie. Leave about 1 inch between cookies.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the cookies in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with extra ground spices and serve.
