Picture of Making Meringues
Sweet and light cookie-like desserts, meringue recipes are first found in a French cookbook by Massialot, published in 1692. Although my meringues might not be as authentic, they're still airy, delicious, and a family favorite. After making a school project about them, I decided to upload my recipe here as well :)

EDIT: Wow, thanks so much for all the favorites & the feature, guys! Means a lot ~

Thank you. This is the same recipe I used when I was a little girl. I have seen these for sale in the store, but I know they taste so much better fresh.

You're welcome!
Yeah, they definitely do taste better fresh ;)
great! if you need a constant low temperature during that hour you can try the meringues solution for your oven ;-)

Yummy! You can flavor these too right?

Hmm, that's a good question. I've never tried it -- I'd assume you can though! Let me know if you do, I'd love to hear how it turns out :)
