I was raving about meringues a few posts ago and thought it was rather rude to not include a recipe.
3 egg whites (room temp.)
1/4 tsp. cream of tarter
1/3 cup sugar
drop of orange extract (or whatever extract you like) or freshly grates orange peel
-whip eggs and c of t until soft peaks form, gradually sprinkle in the sugar, gently fold in peel or extract
-drop large spoonfuls of batter on baking sheet lined with parchment ( I use aluminum foil in a pinch but it sticks, still yummy though!)
-bake in oven preheated to 225 for an hour and a half then let cool in oven for another hour
Then enjoy and try not to eat them all yourself. And if you really feel inspired I highly recommend this recipe I made for Hallie's birthday last year from Southern Living...
