What Is Meringue?

These cookies are made primarily from egg whites and sugar, whipped together until stiff peaks form. This creates a light and airy mixture that is then baked at a low temperature to create their signature crisp exterior. Meringues have been around for centuries and are believed to have originated in Switzerland in the 17th century. Today, they are enjoyed all over the world in a variety of forms – from pies and cakes to small bites like our jam filled meringue cookies.
