  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.
  • Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. Place the egg white into the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk on medium speed until soft peaks begin to form, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the granulated sugar, 1 Tablespoon at a time, and the cream of tartar. Whip until the mixture has stiff peaks and is glossy and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Place the strawberry jam and food coloring in a large bowl and stir thorough one-quarter of the meringue mixture. Fold the pink meringue through the remaining meringue.
  • Using 2 Tablespoons, place six to eight 1/2 cup scoops of meringue onto the parchment paper, swirling it around with the spatula until you have a peaked meringue. Bake for 2 hours, or until the meringues are dry and crisp. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues to cool in the oven.
