More Meringue

My experiments in meringue have led to some citrus creations!

I like simple flavours; Items with few ingredients that can stand on their own and meringue fulfills this pretty well.

Only 4 ingredients, although sometimes I leave out the vanilla.

This time I did lemon and orange zest.  Not together, although, that gives me an idea for the next project – lemon-lime! ooooo 😀

Of course, I started them without enough time to bake the last two batches, so I tried a method I heard about from my friend Jane: Forgotten Kisses. Put the cookies in the oven, turn it off and leave them for at least two hours. It worked like a charm.

Both types are light and fluffy with a great flavour. The forgotten kiss method keeps them nice and white although they don’t poof as much.

Recipe:

2 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sugar
zest of lemon, orange or lime

Preheat oven to 325°F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

I whipped the egg whites and split them up into two bowls.

Fold in gently and bake for about 15 mins.

Let cool on baking sheet and remove to wire rack.
