How to make meringue cookies

In the bowl of a stand mixer add egg whites and a pinch of salt. Whip on low speed for as few seconds. Change the speed to medium-high and add granulated sugar. Whip for 8-10 minutes or until stiff picks form. Add sifted powdered sugar and whip again for a few seconds until all combined. Transfer meringue into a pastry bag with Wilton 104 pipping tip. Turn silicon mold upside down and pipe rose on each cavity as you see below.

Tip from Marina: I had to cut silicon mold to make it easy to pipe meringue.

Bake meringue cookies in the preheated oven at 180oF (85oC) for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cookies cool completely in the oven. Do not open the door!

Slowly drizzle the sugar mixture into a raspberry puree, mixing with the whisk all the time. Wait until the mixture starts boiling. Boil for a few minutes.

Recipe FAQs

How to store?

Store assembled Meringoron in an air-tight container in the fridge for 72 hours. They always taste better as they are freshly made. I would not recommend freezing this dessert. Meringue cookies will become soggy and wet.

Why are my macarons flat or spread?

This happens if the batter is overmixed. Check the consistency of the batter every 2-3 folds. OVerwmixed batter flows off the spatula very fast.

Why are my macarons hollow?

There are many reasons for that. The most common are unstable meringue, incorrect folding technique, or wrong oven temperature.
