What I’ve learned in making meringue.

  • – be patient. I’ve been known to use a handheld mixer and mixed for almost 30 minutes! You’ve got to keep it going until stiff peaks form.
  • – Use a small bowl. A big bowl makes the mixing take longer.
  • – Use egg whites at room temperature.
  • – Make sure the bowl you are using has no soap residue or water in it.
  • – Don’t over cook. They will turn brown quickly and you can’t go back from that.
  • – Let the 60 minutes to dry out in a hot oven happen. The cookies need this time!
