Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

4 egg whites
2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar


Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Butter and flour a baking sheet.


In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Sprinkle in sugar a little at a time, while continuing to whip at medium speed. When the mixture becomes stiff and shiny like satin, stop mixing, and transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag. Pipe the meringue out onto the prepared baking sheet using a large round tip or star tip.


Place the meringues in the oven and place a wooden spoon handle in the door to keep it from closing all the way.


Bake for 3 hours, or until the meringues are dry, and can easily be removed from the pan. Allow cookies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature.


Questions, Comments & Reviews


My SIL used to make these for my FIL who was on a very strict diet. She used to add different flavorings or colorings to make it different now and then. Thanks for a great memory.
