Christmas Tree Meringues are festive, fun and make a light airy addition to a cookie plate this time of year.
Cream of Tartar - Do not skip the cream of tartar in this recipe. It helps the egg whites to set up properly and hold their shape while baking. It will work best if it is reasonably fresh. (i.e. if your cream of tartar has been hiding in the back of the pantry for years, it's time to replace it before making meringues).
