You probably know merengue cakes – we just call them kisses 😘
I love that something as simple as egg whites and sugar can taste so heavenly good.
I love that these small merengue kisses can be used/made in so many ways and desserts or just be eaten alone.
– and I love when my kids come to me and ask for a kiss – and pays with a kiss!!
4th of July is around the corner, and in that occasion we added food coloring along the inner side of the pastry bag, before adding the merengue – in this way you get an awesome color change when you pipe it out.
Ingredients: (makes about 150)
8 egg whites
1 pinch of salt
4 cups of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon of corn starch
1 tablespoon of vinegar
Heat up the oven to 250° Fahrenheit.
Mix egg whites with salt on high speed, until you can turn the bowl upside down – without the egg whites coming out!
Add the sugar – 1 tablespoon at a time! – while the mixer is still on.
When you start getting a more shiny mass, you turn the mixer to low and add corn starch and vinegar.
Add some drops of food coloring along the inner side of the Pastry Bag.
Bake for 1 hour, cool down and keep in an air tight container.
Be ready to share you kisses while celebrating 4th of July!
