Spiced Pecan Brown Sugar Meringue Cookies

I love brown sugar meringue on top of pies or used for cookies. So much yummier than the average meringue!

I adapted this recipe from a previous post I did over the summer.

Spiced Pecan Brown Sugar Meringue Cookies


3 egg whites
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup pecans
pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 225.

In your mixer beat eggs and salt on high till soft peaks form. Slowly add in brown sugar continue to beat on high till stiff peaks form and it's glossy looking. Beat in vanilla and spices.

Fold in pecans.

Drop in 1 to 2 tbs dollops or pipe kisses onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 1 hour.

Turn oven off and crack the door let them stay in there until they completely cool.
