Meringue Christmas Trees– Celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas with Sweet’N Low®!

I’m partnering with Sweet’N Low® to bring you one of my new favorite holiday recipes -fun Meringue Christmas Trees

Counting down the days until Christmas has never been sweeter! This year, I’m singing along to “12 Days of Christmas” with Sweet’N Low® and celebrating the holiday season with a new recipe inspired by the classic song.

My recipe is based off the 11th day of the song, “11 Pipers Piping,” and I thought meringue cookies would be a perfect fit!. A simple yet carefully piped cookie that can be made into festive trees, and that’s low in sugar, will have your caroling along with us.

How to Make Meringue Christmas Trees

 

HOW TO WHIP YOUR MERINGUE

 

Whip your egg whites, Sweet’N Low® and sugar to get a stiff consistency like this other meringue recipe.

Add green food coloring to get desired green color.  You can use gel or liquid food coloring.

The easiest way to add your mixture into a piping bag is to put the pastry bag into a tall glass and then add your mixture.  Be sure to press the meringue down gently.

Gently pipe a tree shape, making the base of the tree the size of a quarter and then quickly releasing the bag to get a narrow top.

Add sprinkles and a star on top.  (I am not sure if the star was too heavy as some of my trees fell over in the oven)

Bake in a low temperature oven for about 2 hours.

These meringues will last for at least a week in a tight container and are the perfect one bite Christmas treat.

  • When baking with Sweet’N Low®, it is recommended to keep ½ of the sugar in the recipe to ensure proper volume, texture and browning.
  • In addition to using the product in your favorite recipes, Sweet’N Low® easily dissolves in hot and cold beverages.
