How NOT to make Meringue Cookies

20 Dec

I have been making meringues since before I could walk.  It is the first memory I have with my Grandmother and my first food memory.  She taught me how to peak egg whites into meringues and let me press the button on her Kitchenaid. 

This does not mean, however, that I do not occasionally completely FAIL meringues.


I had just made an apple pie with shortening and, though I washed all my items, I think there was still too much grease on my hands and some of my utensils and it killed the meringues.


Meringue pancakes anyone?

This FAIL post is to preview the theme of this week.  All meringues. All the time.  Why? Because what better dessert can you think of for Christmas than a sugary, white, delicious treat that is VERY impressive to make. 

And this week will feature my first video blogs on “how to make a meringue” in 3 parts. 

Happy Meringue Week!
