Meringue Topping for your desserts
Type: Dessert
  • 4 or 6 Egg Whites
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  1. Whip ingredients to stiff peaks.
  2. The meringue will become smooth and have a glossy shine.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
