|little vanilla meringue cookies|
Last week I made amazing lemon curd. I used the Martha Stewart recipe which calls for 4 egg yolks. So what do I do with egg whites? Do I make a low fat egg white omelet? No, that sounds disgusting. I will make meringues.
Meringues are OK. I would not say they are the bees knees, but they are fun and a nice change from fatty traditional cookies.
I used the Joy of cooking recipe. You can find any recipe on line but it is nice having a food bible in the kitchen that you can trust.
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 tsp vanilla
I like to use old milk bags as pipping bags.
