Merengues de Limón (Lime Meringue Cookies)

Hola Everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I had some leftover egg whites and I didn’t want to waste them, so I decided to make a lime version of meringue cookies.

I absolutely love classic meringues and this lime version is very good and super simple to make. I hope you enjoy my Lime Meringue Cookies as much as I did.

Buen provecho!



  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of lime zest

  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt on medium-high speed until foamy, about 1 minute. With mixer running, gradually add sugar in 2 additions beating for 3 minutes between each addition. Beat until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes longer.
  3. With a spatula fold in the lime zest. Drop about 3 tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Rotate the pan and bake for another 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to cool completely while still in the oven, about 2 hours.

    I always have some leftover from other recipes and make them into meringues. Erica, in case you don’t know, you can freeze them and use them whenever you like. I add some lemon juice as well as it helps make 0meringue stiffer.

    How many does this make? I am doing a project on Colombia and I am bringing in food, but I need to make sure that I have enough for everyone in my class.
