Super easy – Super cool Meringues

MeringuesFor the people who know me they know that I die for meringues! They are soft, so sweet… I could eat 100 of them in just minutes. Unfortunately they are very hard to cook, and most of the times for they come up as a disaster.
The other day there was this picture on Facebook of a friend of mine that was making meringues with her partner. Maybe was the love and the passion they used, but the output was very nice and I’ve asked her for the recipe.

This recipe is incredibly easy, but I suggest you use a kitchen aid or similar to work the eggs or you won’t have a great result.

  • 100gr egg’s whites
  • 100 gr caster sugar
  • 100 gr of icing sugar

I suggest you weight all the ingredients before you start and put them in small bowls to make it easier when you need them.
Start beating the eggs in your kit...
