Meringue



Meringue

Meringue Cookies are airy, sweet and crisp that seem to almost melt in your mouth

Makes: 18

You will need

1 egg white
2 pinches salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
125 g sugar

Method

Place egg white, salt and lemon juice in a clean glass or metal bowl (not plastic), and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff.

Gradually, add sugar ( 25 g sugar at a time ), while continually whipping until the mixture becomes stiff and glossy.

The meringue is done when it is not runny and when you can hold a spoonful of it upside down and none of it drops off.

Preheat oven ( OTG ) at 150 * C or 300 * F.

Lay a piece of greaseproof paper on the baking tray.

Drop a teaspoonful of the mixture onto the baking tray. Repeat to create the individual meringues. Place each one an inch apart and bake at 150 * C or 300 * F for 20 minutes.

Once cool, the meringues are ready to serve or store in an airtight container.
