Dainty Meringue Cloud Cookies

These are the most delightful cookies and they look like tiny clouds floating in your cookie exchange basket.


I love how simple they are too. As long as you have an electric mixer these are a breeze to make.

They are every bit as light as you'd expect anything named after a cloud to be and they literally melt in your mouth!


The best part is that you can give them any flavor you like.  I included a few flavor ideas but the sky is the limit with this recipe.







  • 2 large egg whites, about 4 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ice water



  • Hazelnut chocolate: 1/4 cup toasted and finely chopped hazelnuts + 2 tablespoons Cacao Bliss or raw cacao powder
  • Chocolate chip: seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean + 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
  • Vanilla coconut: seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean + 3 tablespoons dried unsweetened shredded coconut



1. Bring 2 inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan.

2. In a heat-proof mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, honey, and pinch of salt.

*If you decide to do the coconut or the chocolate chip version, also add the seeds from 1/2 of a vanilla bean while the egg whites are over the heat.

3. Place the bowl over the simmering water, careful not to let it touch the water.

4. Whisk the egg whites constantly for 3-5 minutes, until they are warm to the touch.

5. Remove from the heat, then transfer the mixing bowl to your stand mixer. Immediately begin whipping on high.

6. Pour in the teaspoon of ice water, then keep beating on high until thick and glossy, about 5 minutes.

7. Now you choose your flavor! Or divide the meringue up and make multiple flavors!

8. Drop the batter by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment lined cookie sheet or pipe with a pastry tip.

*For the vanilla coconut, sprinkle the shredded coconut on top of the peaks before drying.

8. Bake at 175ºF for 1.5 hours until the meringues are dry to the touch but not brown, then turn the oven off and let them cool with the oven door closed for another hour.
