Blueberry Meringue Cookies

Blueberry Meringue Cookies

After two very unsuccessful attempts with these – I think I finally have the right oven temperature, cooking time and syrup making method to make the most beautiful, perfectly swirled blueberry meringue cookies.

This are simple, light and fluffy clouds of sugar, every so slightly swirled with a fresh, homemade blueberry syrup that takes these traditional meringues to a whole new level.

And when I say fluffy clouds – I am serious!  The soft shell exterior of these meringues are just  thin protection to the airy soft middles on these cookies.  It’s chewy and sweet, with a sweet stickiness that stays on your tongue just long enough to make you want more.

The blueberry swirl, that is so easy to make, really makes these stand out.  The are the perfect addition to a weekend brunch or dessert bar.  The absolute best part – they can easily be put together the night before, cooked in the oven just long enough to harden up on the exterior, and just sit in your cool oven to completely set.

I love a no fuss dessert that looks like you slaved on them for hours.  It makes you look like an all-star, and who doesn’t love that?!  These can also easily be made up tonight just in time for your 4th of July celebration.  Now you can look like an all-star on the most all-star of days
