In the form of French Meringues. Yum. Oui Oui. Merci Beaucoup. Magnifique. I made some of these last week for a baby shower and decided to make some heart-shaped ones in honor of the upcoming Valentines Day. You know, because things taste better when they are heart-shaped. And meringues, they are so fluffy and good. All you need are 2 ingredients: egg whites & suga' sug.
4 egg whites (room temperature)
2 1/4 C confectioners sugar
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. Line baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
Whip the egg whites until foamy. Slowly add all the sugar in small bits. Mix in Kitchen-Aid on medium speed for 30-40 minutes until satiny and looks like whipped cream.
Place in pastry bag and pipe into desired shape (I used a large star shaped tip with my bag)
Place in oven and put a wooden spoon in the oven door to keep it slightly propped open (this will avoid getting cracks in the meringues)
Bake for 3 hours.
Make sure they are completely dry before pulling them out of the oven.
Allow to cool completely & store in an air-tight container.
Mine just came out of the oven. I think I'll top them with mixed berries. Oui Oui.
