3 large egg whites
175 grams caster sugar
1 salt (pinch)

Step 1:

Heat the oven to 140C (gas mark 1). Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Prepare your piping bag. (if using one)

Step 2:

Separate 3 large egg whites and measure your sugar.

Step 3:

Place the egg whites and a pinch of salt in the bowl of an electric mixer with a whisk attachment. Whisk on a low speed for 1 minute, then increase the speed to medium and whisk for another 2-3 minutes, or until the egg whites form stiff peaks.

Step 4:

If you lift the whisk attachment out of the bowl, the mixture should look fluffy and cling to them, while the peaks remain stiff and moist-looking. This will take longer if doing by hand or using a hand held mixer. Then, while continuing to whisk, gradually add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is stiff and glossy - this may take 5-10 minutes.

Step 5:

I'm using a piping bag to pipe the meringue mixture onto my tray if you do not have a piping bag you can Use a large metal spoon to place it on to the prepared baking trays.

Step 6:

Bake for 60 minutes, or until the meringues are pale and dry. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to cool in the oven with the door slightly open.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm new to this and is only my 2nd instructable, there great for kids! my kids love them!

    Nicely done! I like how the red lessened as you went, kind of looks like the ombre effect on the tray there :) You need to stack them on a plate in the order they are on the tray, it would be an awesome presentation!
