French meringue kisses

Beat at medium speed until whites begin getting foamy. Slowly add in ¼ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until egg mixture is glossy and stiff peaks have formed. Transfer meringue mixture into a piping bag with a small nozzle and pipe onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 30-45 minutes.
