These Meringue Cookies are worthy of being on the Christmas cookie list! They are soft, chewy and crisp with the meringue weaved in. Beautiful and delicious!

These “Finnish Meringue Cookies” were shared with me by one of my readers, Vika, a few years ago and it has become a reader and family favorite. The original recipe has 23 5-star reviews and I’ve had several requests to make a video tutorial so here it is – see I made meringue Christmas cookies for you all! I am so nice ;).

These are great holiday cookies but we make them throughout the year. I always get recipe requests when I make them.

I’m so embarrassing :-O, although my husband and I had fun filming this video ;). And cooking should be fun, not too serious or boring! This new video format we’ve been doing is completely practical – otherwise it would be hilarious and distracting to hear baby chatter and hot wheels car wrecks in the background.

We hope you enjoy our videos and if you have any suggestions for future video recipes, let me know in a comment below. We’re excited about bringing you more videos in 2016. Click here to subscribe to our cooking channel and be the first to see our videos!

      Thank you for the compliment Tzivia 😬. These cookies freeze great, I froze a batch recently. I would add more powder sugar after removing them from the freezer. Reply

    Hello Natasha,

    I woulylike to make dairy free version of these cookies. Do you have any suggestions? Reply

    • Natasha

      Hi Roza, I haven’t tried any dairy free substitutions but the sour cream activates the baking soda so it is important in the recipe. I would suggest using coconut milk with 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of vinegar. Reply

    Lol, you are too funny. I can’t help but laugh out loud when I watch your videos. Thanks for the recipe! A friend of mine brought these over once and we loved them! I asked for the recipe and she told me it’s on Natasha’s kitchen. So planning to make these tomorrow! Reply

    After rolling the dough would it help to chill it before cutting it? Reply

    • Natasha

      March 29, 2017

      Hi D, It is a little messy when slicing but that is totally normal. The reason why I would not refrigerate the dough is because the meringue can liquify if you let it sit for too long before you bake it, whether it is in the refrigerator or at room temperature, it starts to turn into liquid at the base and then become sticky when you bake it. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    I was wondering if I could double up this recipe to make more? Or is it better to make one batch at a time. One of my co-workers requested 100 of these for his christmas party!!!!

    love this recipe! Reply

    • Natasha

      Ira, I would recommend making one batch at the time. Let me know how they turn out 😁. Reply

      • Ira
        December 20, 2016

        So, I made 5 batches of these! They turned out prefect! I made one batch at a time which took about 2.5 hrs. To serve, I placed each cookie individually into a white paper cupcake cup. I usually do this when I take them to any gathering. I also placed them into a large disposable foil pans, 2 layers in each, and separated the layers with parchment paper. I’m waiting to hear back if they were a hit at the party😁.
        Thank you for this recipe! Everytime I make these, everyone raves about them and asks me for the recipe☺️…I just give them your website. Reply

    Just made these and they came out really good… I don’t have a stand mixer so I used a hand mixer for everything but still came out really good…and I used pure cane sugar instead of the white sugar, and even though it took a little longer to mix (about15min); it still came out good:-) Reply

      Hi Anna, I haven’t tested it without the sour cream so I can’t really recommend anything else. A full fat Greek yogurt might work but again, I haven’t tested it. Reply

    Hi Natasha, do these cookies store well? How long do they keep? Thank you. Reply

    • Natasha

      They store well at room temperature. I’ve never tested their max life expectancy because they get eaten so quickly. I’d say at least 3 days at room temperature in some kind of tupperware 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha, I’ve made this cookies yesterday with my daughter. She is 8 years old and she did all the measuring, combined the ingredients, mixing…I did help her at the rolling part and cutting. We had lots of fun and like the other kids she loved your silly faces:)) These cookies are amazingly good!!! thank you for sharing all this tasty recipes with us! Reply

    Would the cookies still turn out the same if I use a different company of sour cream? It’s just that they turned out different when I used a different flour so I was wondering if they would turn out the same if I used a different sour cream instead of daisy. Reply

      Sour cream brands don’t really make a difference, as long as it’s not a Canadian sour cream which is usually much thinner and more syrupy in consistency. Any American sour cream brand will work fine 🙂 Reply

      Hi Tanya, I think they would stick too much to the foil. I would recommend parchment paper. Reply

    Love the video!!! You’re hilarious! Had to re-watch the power sugar bit a few times….I want to make sure I get it just right, lol. Love the cookies too, I’ve made them a couple of times in the past, but now I want some really bad. Yum. Reply

    Hi Natasha, I was wondering,could you do this without the paddle attachment,as I only have a hand mixer and it only has a whisk attachment. And also is it too sweet?

    Thanks!! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 29, 2015

      These aren’t too sweet and you can control the sweetness with the amount of powdered sugar you add at the end. The actual cookie doesn’t have very much sugar in it. If using a hand mixer, I’d switch to mixing it by hand using a stiff spatula. The dough will be too thick for a whisk attachment. They will work just fine if mixed by hand. Reply

      • December 30, 2015

        Would they work if I kneads it a bit? Reply

          Hi Lana, these cookies don’t need any kneading – you just want the dough to be uniformly mixed 🙂 Reply

    These are so yummy! I made some last week and this time I’ll add some pecans with the meringue 🙂 have you tried cutting them with floss, like you’d cut cinnamon rolls? I found that to be easier than the knife and cleaner a bit. Just make sure you tuck the floss all the way under the bottom dough layer, then lift the floss, twist, and pull. Thanks for easy and tasty recipe. Merry Christmas!! My kids enjoyed your silly faces 😉 hehe Reply

      That is brilliant with the floss! I love it! And I could use cinnamon flavored for extra flavor – ha ha, just kidding! But seriously the floss idea is great! That’s so fun that your kids enjoyed the video too. I’m all smiles. Thanks Yana! Reply

        Definitely try the floss technique! Have been using it for years and will never go back to the knife lol. These cookies look delicious! Merry Christmas to your wonderful family!! Reply
