Freshly baked meringue kisses.
Meringues, a fluffy, crispy candy/cookie. They’ve been the bane of my existence until last Christmas when I received the most amazing Christmas present ever: A kitchen aid mixer. Whipping up meringues has always been difficult, but with steady, fast whipping and a simple recipe, my egg whites stiffen up without any effort at all and my meringues turn out perfect every time.
3/4 cup sugar
4 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tarter
A pinch of salt
Optional: Vanilla or almond extract
Optional: A few drops of food colouring
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
Perfect, cold eggs
Separate 4 eggs whites from their yolks. Beat whites, cream of tartar and salt with an electric mixer until white and stiff peaks have formed.
Gradually add the sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick and glossy. For additional flavour add a few drops of vanilla or almond extract.
