Anyone interested in anything super light, super airy, and super delicious?? Well, I am! And what better way to create something that good than making meringues? Oh, and the hint of lemon just adds that extra punch of flavor along with the puffy airyness!
3 egg whites
¾ cup powdered sugar
pinch of cream of tartar
1 teaspoon lemon extract or 2 teaspoons lemon juice
beat egg whites until fluffy. Beat in powdered sugar and cream of tartar. Beat in lemon extract and food coloring. Pipe onto a pan lined with parchment paper using a Ziploc bag with the tip cut. Bake at 225˚F for 45 minutes or until firm.
