Meringue Kisses

3 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp peppermint extract (optional)
dash of salt
1 cup granulated sugar
green sugar crystals
red sugar crystals
1 bag chocolate kisses

In a small bowl, using mixer beat egg whites with vanilla extract, cream of tartar, peppermint extract, and salt until soft peaks form. Very slowly add the granulated sugar and beat until very stiff.

Take a small amount of the mixture and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place a chocolate kiss in the center and cover with a small amount of the mixture. Repeat until cookie sheet is full. Sprinkle with red & green sugar crystals.

Bake at 250 degrees for about 40-45 minutes until the cookies are slightly tan and hard. Place on a cooling rack for 20 minutes. Yields 3 dozen.
