Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Maple Almond Kisses

This is a tasty cookie, which is easy to make and has only four ingrediants. They are a unique cookie which are fun to serve others. It is a light and sophisticated cookie; lovely to serve with tea or ice cream and easy to pack up for "taking".

Maple Almond Kisses
2 Egg Whites
1/3C Pure Maple Syrup (we like Grade B)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2C Finely Chopped Almonds
  • Preheat oven to 275F. Line a cookie sheet with parchement paper.
  • In a large beat egg whites until soft peaks form. (Do this with a beater on HIGH or a whisk and lots of fast strokes.)
  • Gradually, add syrup while beating on high (if doing this manually, you will need a helper while you hold the bowl and beat) until stiff (but not dry).
  • Gently fold in vanilla and almonds.
  • Dollop spoons full onto prepared cookie sheets with a little tip at the top (like a "Hershey's Kiss shape) and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 250F and bake 10 minutes more.
Let cool and remove from paper with a thin spatula. Makes about 2 dozen.

The texture on these vary slightly based on your the size of your dollops. Some may be crispy outside and chewing inside (like a chewey toasted marshmellow- kinda) While some may be sticky and elastic like soft taffy. Both are very tasty and get posative reviews. The cookies get to a like toasted color. I am anxious to try other flavors in place of the maple. I would love to hear your reveiws of this (or any) recipe, if you try it!

Tried this yesterday. The fans went wild. Will do again and try different variations. I am thinking along the lines of lemon and agave for my sweet-sour tooth. Thanks for this easy meringue recipe.
