Simple Recipe: Two Ingredient Meringues

Frock Files | Pastel Meringues

Since Easter is coming up this weekend, I wanted to do something in pretty pastels but I’m not great with actual eggs — I always manage to break them. Instead, I chose a recipe that includes plenty of eggs but no egg shells. So while these definitely aren’t vegan, they are gluten-free! (Vegan friends, this recipe for vegan meringues looks excellent.)

These meringues take a total of 20 minutes of hands-on time and include just two ingredients (three if you use food coloring). It’s likely that you already have everything on hand, so it’s not too late to make these for your Easter festivities.

Ingredients
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 1/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • Food coloring (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place parchment paper on two baking sheets. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Separate the egg whites and yolks one by one. Place egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer or in a mixing bowl if using a hand mixer.
  3. Whip the egg whites on high until they’re foamy and cloud-like, about two minutes. Slowly add the confectioner’s sugar while continuing to mix on medium speed. Add in the food coloring two drops at a time until you reach your desired color.
  4. Return the mixer to high speed until the mixture becomes thick and shiny, about 5 minutes. Don’t skimp on this step, or your cookies will end up looking like this.
  5. Put the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star shaped tip, then pipe out as many cookies as possible.
  6. Bake for 3 hours, keeping the oven door slightly open.

That’s it! Once the cookies are cool, store them in an air tight container for up to three days. I promise you’ll feel like you’re in Sophia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette while you devour these with a cup of tea.

P.S. Have you heard of The Simple Things? It’s a British lifestyle magazine with a great blog attached to it. I’m terribly flattered that they’ve featured my Mason jar cocktail shaker post.
