Aren't these blackberry swirl meringue cookies pretty? Sometimes you want a dainty cookie, something to go with tea or maybe Champagne cocktails. Something to eat in your favorite spring floral dress. Or something to eat standing up in the kitchen in your favorite $5 sweatpants. Doesn't matter. We're not there to see how you eat your cookies.
At any rate, I love that a recipe this simple results in such an elegant cookie. It's from the new Southern Cookie Book (from Southern Living). Go ahead and swirl in any one of your favorite jams — it doesn't have to be blackberry, although you can see how beautifully that deep, berry red contrasts with white meringue.
Prep time: 15 minutes | Bake time: 2-1/2 hours | Inactive time: 30 minutes | Total time: 3 hours 15 minutes
Many Southerners refer to blackberries as “dewberries” and enjoy summer’s bumper crops in cobblers and pies. Made with jam, these light and airy cookies may be enjoyed throughout the year.
Note: If you prefer your meringues to be crisp and dry from center to exterior, then turn off the oven after baking, and let them stand in the oven overnight.
