Meringue Cranberries Birch Twigs

This week the ALPHA BAKERS are baking meringue cookies.
I have made these lovely meringue Birch twigs before and had a bit of a problem because of my arthritis in my hand, so I decide to make them again. .

These meringue Birch twigs are fragile ,light  and airy, flavory ,and crispy.

I decide to add about 1/4 cup of dried cranberries chopped very small and just vanilla extract, I got 24 X 12" inches twigs.

These pretty flavory meringue brich twigs are also very fragile , I broke a few too just by picking them up!!

              Simply Delicious and fragile!
           Absolutely light and cripy
 Used a plastic bag and cut a small cut so I could pip thin chocolate over the twigs..
Melted the chocolate over simmering water.
Out of the oven  to cool. .
 I piped 24 x 12 inch and now ready to bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes,  the oven off and left inside for another 2 hours. .
Can you see the little small bits of cranberries in the meringue.  Meringue is ready to be piped,  using a 12 inch round tip and a plastic bag.
 Because of the amount of egg whites and cream of tartar , I whisked it by hand to help it before whisking in the stand mixer and added the dried cranberries at the end of whisking for a couple of minutes ...
Processed the sugar in a smaller food processor and process it very fine..
 Have all of the ingredients ready plus the egg whites..
            They look pretty and taste good!!

  1. They do look pretty! I like the idea of cranberries--they seem more wintery than raspberry and therefore go better with the birch twig theme.

    1. Yes Marie, and they do, I like the theme Because of the flavor of dried cranberries make them very nice.....thank you Marie.

  2. At first I thought it was bread stick, but as I was reading it ,they are cookies, what a beautiful idea sis 😆
