Hi, I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions. I made some peppermint meringues for the first time. They contain egg whites, sugar, salt, peppermint extract and cream of tartar. They baked to a nice texture and the initial flavor is very nice, but they have a very tart/bitter aftertaste that lingers for quite a while. Would it be the cream of tartar? Can I reduce the amount I add next time? Or is there a substitute I can use?
I’m quite new to baking sweets other than basic cakes and cookies, so please help
