Ingredients
  1. 4 Large EGG whites, room temperature
  2. 1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
  3. 1 3/4 cups Powdered Sugar, sifted
  4. 1 cup Crushed Peppermint Candies OR Candy Canes
Instructions
  1. HEAT oven to 225° F. BEAT egg whites and cream of tartar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until foamy. Beating constantly, ADD sugar, 2 Tbsp. at a time, until the whites are glossy and stand in stiff peaks.
  2. FOLD IN crushed candies. Spoon into pastry bag fitted with large fluted or plain tip. PIPE meringue onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. SPRINKLE with additional crushed candies.
  3. BAKE in 225° F oven until firm, about 1 hour. Turn off oven. LET DRY in oven, with door closed, until cool and crisp, at least one hour.
Notes
  1. • Customize your cookies! With only 4 basic ingredients and multiple tasty variations, these meringue kisses are great for any occasion! Peppermint kisses make a perfect addition to any holiday cookie tray!
  2. • Chocolate Sprinkle Variation: Omit peppermint candies. Pipe from a pastry bag fitted with large fluted tip. Sprinkle with chocolate jimmies before baking.
  3. • A dry day is best. Meringue kisses made on humid days absorb moisture from the air, causing them to flatten out when baked and lose their crispness.
  4. • Substitution: 1 cup granulated sugar can be substituted for the powdered sugar. Beat after each addition until sugar is dissolved before adding the next. Rub a bit of meringue between thumb and forefinger; it should feel completely smooth.
  5. • Baking sheets can be lightly greased and floured, if desired.
  6. • No pastry bag? Drop meringue by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets.
  7. • To store: Place meringue kisses in tightly sealed container, with waxed paper between layers.
  8. • To re-crisp: If stored kisses lose their crispness, bake in 200°F oven 15 to 20 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. 12 hard-cooked EGGS, peeled
  2. 1 can (8 ounces) white lump crabmeat, drained, flaked
  3. 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  4. 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  5. 2 tsp. lemon pepper
  6. 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  7. 1 tsp. prepared horseradish
  8. Additional fresh dill, optional
Instructions
  1. SLICE eggs lengthwise in half. REMOVE yolks; place in a medium bowl.
  2. ADD crabmeat, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, lemon pepper, mustard and horseradish. MIX until blended.
  3. DIVIDE yolk mixture evenly between egg whites.
  4. SPRINKLE top of each filled egg white with additional fresh dill before serving.
Notes
  1. Very fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. To ensure easily peeled eggs, buy and refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance of cooking. This brief “breather” allows the eggs time to take in air, which helps separate the membranes from the shell.
  2. To hard-cook eggs: PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. HEAT over high heat just to boiling. REMOVE from burner. COVER pan. LET EGGS STAND in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra-large) COOL completely under cold running water and peel.
  3. Hard-cooked eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling. Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.
  4. To peel a hard-cooked egg: Gently tap egg on countertop until shell is finely crackled all over. Roll egg between hands to loosen shell. Starting peeling at large end, holding egg under cold running water to help ease the shell off.
