Recipe: Raspberry Meringue | + Giveaway Recipe Notebook

Hello, Lovelies
 
 
Meringue a delicate dessert that I as an American feared making. When I think of people who eat and make Meringues I think of a little pastry shop somewhere in Europe overlooking an ancient and beautiful cobblestone square. Not me.
But I went ahead and gave it a try anyway.

And I do believe they tuned out very nice.



 
Bake: 275°F for  40 minutes, Let cool in oven 1-2 Hours
 
 
4 Egg Whites (Room Temp)
 
1/4 teaspoon Salt
 
1/4 teaspoon Cream Of Tartar
 
 1 teaspoon Vanilla
 
2 teaspoons Raspberry Flavoring

1 1/4 cups Granulated Sugar
 
 optional: 3-4 drops Red Gel Food coloring

In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Add egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, vanilla & flavoring. Mix. Keep mixing for 2-3 minutes. First few minutes will look like you are mixing bubbles. Once soft peaks have slowly began to form start slowly adding in your sugar. Keep mixing and adding in your sugar. After you've added all your sugar continue to mix 2-5 minutes or until you see stiff peaks.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. And scoop mixture onto tray with a spoon or cookie scoop. Bake for 40 minutes on the middle rack (Not bottom). If placed on bottom rack the bottoms of the meringue will overcook.

To keep them from cracking leave in oven until cool. Which I did. Mine cracked during the cooking, I am just glad they didn't fall. I think the cracks look rather pretty. Not sure if the cracking had to do with baking at a high altitude ?
