Project red: Peppermint meringues

Christmastime and December waft with wonderful fuzzy feeling, but its personal meaning has evolved for me throughout my life. As a child, it was all about Santa: leaving him cookies and milk, and of course, gifts. Later, as my belief in Santa waned, it became only about the presents under the tree. As an adult, I wish nothing more than to give to my loved ones, preferably in the form of delicious baked goods. These cloud-like peppermint meringues symbolize Christmas and December for me, as the soft crackly cookie dissolves as gracefully as the subtle yet always sharp peppermint flavor.
