Meringues

Meringues

 Prep.Time: 15-20 min
 Cook.Time: 1 hour
 Difficulty: Easy
 Serves: 12-14 Meringues

Tools                 

 Mixing Bowl
 Balloon Whisk
   or Hand Blender
 Baking Sheet

Ingredients       

 3 Large Egg Whites
 6oz/175g Caster Sugar


Method                                                                       

Pre-heat the oven to 150°c / 300°f / Gas Mark 2.
Whisk the eggs whites until they form soft peaks and you can turn the bowl upside down without the eggs slipping in the bowl.
Gradually whisk in the sugar, a bit at a time and you should end up with a silky looking mixture.
Now you can either place blobs on the baking sheet or make one or two larger meringues.
Using a metal skewer, swirl the blobs to smooth them out a little and make a peak in the middle for small ones or on the outside for larger ones.
Place in the middle of the oven.
Turn down the oven immediately to 140°c / 275°f / Gas Mark 1.
When the hour is up, turn the oven off and leave open slightly to allow the meringues to cool completely in the oven.
Store in an airtight container and serve with whipped cream.
