How Long Does it Take to Make Sugar Free Meringue Cookies?

One of my favorite things about this recipe is how quick it is to prep! A long bake time is necessary since they need to be baked at a lower temperature, but that’s okay! 

These cookies take just 20 minutes to prepare. Once prepped, place them in the oven, set a timer for an hour and relax knowing that your sweet tooth will be taken care of soon!

How Many Carbs Are in Meringue Cookies?

A typical, non keto meringue cookie can have as much as 25+ net carbs per serving! These sugar free meringue cookies are thankfully nowhere near that. In fact, these cookies have less than 1 net carb per serving!

This recipe makes 30 servings.

How to Store Sugar Free Meringue Cookies

When stored properly, meringue cookies can last up to 2 weeks after they are made. To make your meringue cookies last as long as possible, be sure to keep them in an airtight container (we have found the best results with glass jars). Keep the jar sealed and placed on the countertop or in the pantry at room temperature.

Meringue cookies can also be stored in an airtight container in the freezer to make them last even longer (several months). The freezer is a great option if you like to keep your portions under control.

I like to store them in the freezer and just take one out at a time for those times when I just want to treat myself. The cookies will thaw out after just a few short hours at room temperature.

Tips to Make the Best Sugar Free Meringue Cookies

The following tips will help you to make the best sugar free meringue cookies.

Do Not Add The Sugar Too Quickly

I know it’s tempting to rush through the step of adding the sugar spoon by spoon, but trust me, don’t. Take it slow and add the sugar with patience. This will prevent the mixture from deflating.

Do Not Skip Using Cream of Tartar

Are you out of cream of Tartar and contemplating leaving it out? Don’t. The addition of cream of tartar helps create fluffier cookies and it helps the cookies hold their shape longer.

Use a Clean, Completely Dry Bowl

Meringue is picky. Even the slightest hint of moisture or a flake of an unnecessary ingredient can prevent the mixture from forming properly. Before adding any of your ingredients, double check that your bowl is clean and completely dry.

Bring Eggs to Room Temperature

Meringue is airier and better formed with room temperature egg whites. The best way to bring egg whites to room temperature for best results is to separate the egg whites immediately after removing the eggs from the fridge (eggs are easier to separate when cold), keeping the egg whites in a bowl on the counter for 30 to 60 minutes before starting your meringue mixture.

Bake Cookies at The Correct Temperature

Baking these meringue cookies at the right temperature will help you to find success in making them! Baking them at the wrong temperature can create texture issues and your cookies can either be too chewy or they
