What is this recipe for? I have the recipe but want to know what the desert is called?

There are only two ingredients: sugar and egg whites.

You beat them until they are thick and creamy. Then you get a cookie sheet and put the creamy stuff on it in dallops (about 2 table spoons). You bake until they’re hard.

I haven’t tried the recipe. I’d like to know what I’d be making before I make it!

I got the recipe out of an old family recipe book.

    They just call them egg white sugar molds. Maybe they don’t have any other official name.

    They are called macroons, mom used to make them, sometimes after they were done, she would put fresh strawberries on them and then top them with whip cream.

    Meringues!

    Pronounced Mer-ang

    Beat the egg whites first but not too much, just til fluffy, then add castor sugar, and beat uilthick and glossy. Ad a few drops of vanilla essence, and even a bit of rosewater if you want.

    Google ‘meringues’

    And you’ll find pictures, recipes and tips.

    Meringues shoud be crispy, not chewy. A lot of mine tun out chewy =[ but im getting better at making them!

    Happy baking =]

    Meringues, they can also have other things added to them like cream of tartar or cornstarch.

    Here is another versoin of them:

    chocolate marbled meringues

    2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
    2 large egg whites- at room temp.
    1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
    ½ cup superfine sugar
    ½ tsp. vanilla extract
    1 ½ tsp. cornstarch
    1 bag mint chocolate chips

    1.Preheat oven to 200°. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 25 seconds; stir, and then microwave for another 20 seconds.
    2.In a glass bowl beat the egg whites on medium speed until frothy. Add the cream of tartar, Continue to beat on medium high speed until the mixture forms peaks. Slowly add the sugar, about a tablespoon at a time, waiting at least 10 seconds between additions, gradually increasing the speed to high. Add the vanilla and beat for another 3 minutes, or until stiff. Sift the cornstarch over the mixture, and gently fold in using a spatula.
    3.Transfer the meringue to a bowl. Using a spatula, heavily drizzle parallel lines of the melted chocolate over the surface of the meringue. Using a 1 inch ice cream scoop scrape across the surface of the mixture, crosswise to the drizzled lines, to get a rounded mound of striped meringue.
    4.Bake for 1 hour, then turn off the oven and leave them in until the oven is completely cooled.

    They’re meringue cookies……. I also add some flaked coconut and mini chocolate morsels … chopped nuts are also good. I add some vanilla extract and a drop of red food color too. At Christmas, I also add a drop of peppermint extract and crushed candy canes ……. Use parchment paper when you make them…..

    Meringues is the common name for them, but my family always called them “Forgettables”, because you usually “forget” them in a cooling oven overnight and they’re done in the morning!
