Will O’ the Wisp Meringue Cookies

Disney Movie Night

When planning our Brave Movie Night, I knew I had to create something inspired by the Will O’ the Wisps that led Merida to her fate. Now, these airy creations can be the star of your movie night too!

Disney Movie Night - Will-O'-Wisps

Will O' the Wisp Meringue Cookies

  • Servings: 25-30
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


4 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
20 drops blue food coloring, more if you use natural food dyes like me


Prepare two large baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 200°F.
Using a whisk attachment on your stand up mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until frothy. Slowly add sugar and beat on high until the mixture is glossy and stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes. Add vanilla extract blue food coloring and mix until well blended.
Place the meringue mixture into a piping bag. cut the bottom of the bag about an inch from the bottom. Start by making the wisps arms (about two and a half inches wide), then the tail (about 2 inches long), then circle and wisp around for the head (about 2 inches high). Leave an inch or so in between each wisp. Continue until either you run out of space or meringue. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Once finished, transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving.

These are very delicate, so be careful when removing them from the parchment paper. I made each cookie to be about 4-5 inches tall, but you could make them shorter or longer if you prefer. recipe from: amagicalkingdomcalledhome.com
