4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
pinch cream of tartar
1/8 tsp almond extract

Beat egg whites and sugar in a bowl over simmering water until sugar dissolves and mixture is warm – not hot.

Put bowl on the electric mixer and add cream of tartar and beat until stiff. You can add color at this point.

Put mixture into a piping bag and make trees or wreaths or whatever.

Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the meringues in the over with the door closed for another 20 minutes
