Quick and Easy Pistachio Meringue Cookies…

Here’s another great recipe adapted from the art of real food Seasonal Recipes for Every Week of the Year.  I really love meringues as you may have read from my past posts and/or those of you who are following @thecookingapprentice on Instagram!  It’s been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl.  Here’s an easy recipe you will love if you also enjoy pistachios–which is also big in our household!

Fact…nuts are packed with nutrients, minerals and vitamins essential for well-being.  But, healthy as they may be, , an ounce of nuts has about 190 calories, so limit your daily intake.  Remember, all good things has their limitations.

Makes 24 small cookies

Preheat oven to 300°F


3 egg whites, room temperature

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup pistachios, finely grated


Beat egg whites and salt until frothy.  Slowly add sugar and beat until stiff.  Add vanilla and fold in pistachios.  Drop batter by teaspoon onto lightly buttered parchment paper.  Bake 25-30 minutes.

Le voilà ! –gcc
