Do you know how easy it is to make hard meringues? My kids love them! I think it’s the texture. They are crunchy but melt in your mouth.
I didn’t make hard meringues for a long time because I thought they were hard to make. They are super easy, as long as it isn’t a humid day. If it is humid out, make them another day. And, make sure you have a mixer (a great use for a stand mixer, if you have one). The bonus, ingredients are simple and are basic pantry items. Egg whites are the main ingredient. I tend to make these in the evenings. Because you need to bake (actually dry) them for 1 1/2 hours in low heat. Then, turn off the oven and let them sit in the oven until cool (I leave them overnight, that makes it super easy).
A little food coloring makes these hard meringues seasonal and festive! I’m not a fan of the plain meringues. I think they look better with just a little color!
Try these hard meringues! They are so easy! Oh, and if you are not sure what the silicone mat that I mentioned is, check out the link here. I love mine. I have never had anything stick on mine and the cleanup is super easy. Have you found something you love that makes baking cleanup easier for you?Google+
