Ingredients
  • 3 egg whites, room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp. cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. instant coffee granules, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Prepare a large cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer with a whisk, whip the egg whites on high speed until light and foamy. Add in sugar, cream of tartar and salt and mix until stiff peaks form and the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Gently fold in 1 tsp. instant coffee granules until combined.
  4. Fill a Ziploc bag with the tip cut off or a piping bag with the meringue batter and pipe onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving at least 1 inch in between. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of coffee granules.
  5. Bake meringues for 50 minutes to 1 hour, then allow to cool. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container 2-3 days.
