Meringues are so easy and cute to make. These weren't as marshmallowy as I would have liked. Maybe a bit less time in the oven would have been good.
All you need to make them is three egg whites and 180g white sugar.
I use this little dish to separate the egg whites from the yolks. It has a little gap in the side to let the whites escape.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Add the sugar a little at a time. I added a tablespoon to start with, then added the rest in three parts.

Beat until thick and glossy.

Fill a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle with meringue.

Pipe small meringues onto a paper lined tray. Bake for 80 to 85 minutes in a 110 degree C oven. Mine were a bit smaller than in the picture with the recipe, so they could have done with a bit less time in the oven.

Cute! This recipe is from the book Afternoon Tea by frankie magazine, which is a compilation of recipes that are perfect for afternoon tea. Enjoy!
