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.

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.
