Cinnamon Coffee Meringue Cookies

Do you love Mexican coffee spiked with cinnamon? And do you like cookies? If you answered yes to both questions, my Cinnamon Coffee Meringue Cookies are for you!

Inspired and adapted from the Mocha Meringue Cookies at Cookie Dough & Oven Mitt.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 a generous teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coffee extract
  • 2 tablespoons of your very favorite chocolate sauce or syrup
  1. Set your oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Whip up the egg whites in a stand mixer. When frothy and bubbly - which happens almost immediately -  add the salt. Followed by the cream of tartar.
  3. Sprinkle in the espresso and cinnamon next.
  4. As the egg whites start to form peaks, pour the sugar in one tablespoon at a time.
  5. Drizzle in the coffee extract.
  6. When stiff peaks appear, stop the mixer. 
  7. Carefully pour the chocolate syrup into a prepared piping bag with a large star tip.
  8. Next, transfer the meringue mixture into the piping bag.
  9. Swirl meringue cookies onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
  10. Bake for 50 minutes.
  11. Turn off the oven and crack the door open for 30 minutes.
  12. Cool completely.
  13. Enjoy with or without a cup of cinnamony Mexican coffee.
