Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites room temperature
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp acai syrup or berry syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup acai puree or berry puree
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, boil ½ cup sugar, water, and acai puree.

  2. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until mixture thickens into a syrup. Add lemon when thickening.

  3. Let cool before using.

  4. Preheat oven to 225˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  5. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they are foamy.

  6. Add salt and lemon juice. Continue whisking.

  7. Slowly add sugar while whisking and beat until glossy, stiff peaks form.

  8. Spoon meringue mixture on the parchment sheet and smooth the top of the meringue with the back of the spoon.

  9. Drizzle about ¼ teaspoon of acai syrup on the meringue and swirl with a toothpick. Repeat for each cookie.

  10. Bake for 90 minutes, until the outside shell becomes stiff and the meringue has gone from shiny to matte. The cookie should easily lift off the parchment.
