Meringue Topping

Learn How-To Make a Fabulous Finish for Your Next Dessert!

 

I just love beautiful dessert toppings, and when they taste delicious too that is an amazing bonus. Meringue Topping is one of those dessert toppers that have both great taste and great looks — desserts crowning glory. And, it is so easy to make.

How-To Make Meringue Topping

4 or 6 Egg Whites
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Whip Meringue to Stiff Peaks

Whip ingredients to stiff peaks. The meringue will become smooth and have a glossy shine.

Spoon Meringue Topping onto Dessert

Spoon meringue topping onto your already baked dessert. Use the spoon to swirl the meringue around, and pull up the spoon to make peaks. Be sure to spread meringue topping all the way to the pie crust or edge of dish to seal.

TIP: Let meringue stand to room temperature before placing on the hot dessert to help prevent weeping. (The heat helps bake the underside of the meringue).

Place the meringue topped dessert into a 350 degree oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the meringue is golden brown as desired.
