Inspired by the Marvel comic, Disney’s new movie Big Hero 6 focuses on young Hiro, his robot and their team of crime fighters. In this animated film, Baymax is the adorable healing robot who steals the show.
Baymax’s “nonthreatening huggable design” easily translates to soft, puffy meringue cookies. Simply pipe out and bake as many Baymax as you need. Nothing feels better and heals your soul quite like freshly made cookies!
Baymax Meringue Cookies (Makes 24)
4 egg whites
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip egg whites until foamy. Sprinkle in the powdered sugar a little at a time while continuing to whip.
When stiff peaks are formed, transfer the mixture into a large pastry bag.
Print out a six-inch tall image of Baymax and place the print out under the parchment so the image shows through. Pipe the meringue onto the parchment, tracing over the Baymax image.
Remember to remove the printed image and then bake for one-and-a-half hours or until the meringues are dry. Turn the oven off and leave the pan with the cookies in the oven for another one to one-and-a-half hours to rest.
Take the cookies off the baking sheet and let cool completely on a wire rack.
With a number-two tip and black icing, pipe Baymax’s facial features. When the icing is dry the cookies are ready to serve.
