12 Days of Oils Peppermint

Peppermint is a powerhouse and an oil I not only use for Christmas baking but, daily. I am going to have crafty gift ideas on my blog using young living essential oils. It's a great way to see how to use these versatile oils and some gift giving ideas. 

Peppermint Meringue Cookies
3 egg whites, room temperature
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1-2 drops Young Living peppermint oil
Preheat oven to 200F.

Place the egg whites and lemon juice in the bottom of a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer. (Make sure there is no grease residue on either the bowl or the mixer… or things will not be "good.”) Beat on high speed for 3-5 minutes or until the egg whites are thick and foamy. and will hold their shape if you were to whip it to make a stiff peak.  Reduce mixing speed to low and slowly pour in the sugar. Mix for an additional minute on medium speed and then add your young living peppermint oil. I try to add only one drop, but it sometimes ends up being two. Mix again for 30 seconds.

Put one of those big Wilton 2D star tips inside a pastry bag or a ziplock bag with the corner cut off. Using a pastry brush or a toothpick, paint the sides of the bag with red food coloring. Stand the bag up inside a glass and fill it with your peppermint meringue mixture.

Place some parchment paper on a cooking sheet or use a siplat and pipe 2″ circles all over the place. I like to start in the middle and then go around until the tray is filled. Try to leave about an inch between each meringue circle. Bake for 2 hours. Eat as many as you possible can stand and then, make more for everyone else. 

After they cool, place them into a cellophane bag with a decorative tie. You could also include a bottle of peppermint oil and the recipe for an easy gift idea. 

Or place the bag into the young living hot chocolate mug with chocolate bars and recipe. 

We also have a private group on Facebook that has more recipes and discusses the Young Living Essential Oils.  If you do not already have someone that you purchase the oils through nor a Young Living account currently, pleaseClick here to email me and ask to be added to the group!
