  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Filipino Meringue Cookies or Paciencia Cookies Instructions:

  • Preheat  the oven to 275° F or 140° C.
  • Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Sift all purpose flour and baking powder and set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites in the bowl until they start to foam and stiff, add sugar little by little and beat until meringue is glossy with stiff peaks.
  • Fold in all purpose flour then add the vanilla extract.
  • Attach the coupling into a piping bag but don’t put any icing nozzle. Spoon the Icing mixture into the bag.

    I’ve made meringue cookies without flour before, but these are the first I will try without flour. Seems like they’ll have much more “bite” to them. Thanks for the recipe!
