Instant and ground coffee pack a double punch in these airy bite-size delights. To make these kosher for Passover, omit the cream of tartar.

  • Portion size 60 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: April 2007


  • 1 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 pinch cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coffee (optional)


In large bowl, dissolve instant coffee in 1/2 tsp (2 mL) water. Add egg whites and cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar, 2 tbsp (25 mL) at a time, until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold in ground coffee (if using).

Using pastry bag or spoon, pipe meringue into 1-inch (2.5 cm) mounds on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 200?F (100?C) oven for about 2 hours or until dry, rotating and switching pans halfway through. Turn off oven; let stand in oven for 30 minutes. Let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 1 week.)
