Heat oven to 150 degrees. Line 8 baking sheets with parchment paper. Draw three 15-inch circles, three 11-inch circles, and three 7-inch circles on the parchment. Turn parchment over so the drawings do not mark the meringue disks during baking; set aside.
Spread meringue inside the circles on the prepared parchment-lined pans. The disks should be about 1 inch thick. Bake in the oven until crisp but not brown, about 4 hours. Turn off oven, and allow meringues to remain in the oven at least 8 hours or overnight. The inside should remain chewy. Store cooled meringue disks in an airtight container or in a cool dry place until ready to use.
