    These are the most elemental meringue only combining egg whites and sugar yet they make a great sweet treat or garnish to a larger dessert.

    Serves: 36 

    • 4 egg whites
    • 2 1/4 cups (350g) icing sugar

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:3hours  ›  Ready in:3hours20min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 95 degrees C. Butter and flour a baking tray.
    2. In a glass or metal bowl whisk egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Sprinkle in sugar a little at a time while continuing to whisk at medium speed.
    3. Place the meringues in the oven and place a wooden spoon handle in the door to keep it from closing all the way.
    4. 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 tray using a large round tip or star tip.
    5. Bake for 3 hours or until the meringues are dry and can easily be removed from the tray. Allow biscuits to cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature.
