As the title states, this is indeed my shortest post, but it's not because I don't have the time.. it's because the recipe I'm sharing it the shortest and easiest EVER.
I made it last Saturday..
You all know what this is?
Let's make it, shall we?
Use leftover egg-whites, and be proud of yourselves for not wasting food, embracing simplicity and for being frugal. Easy as one, two, tree.
One: Take 3 whites of an egg. Start mixing it with a pinch of salt. I use hand-mixer, because I prefer having the control over everything that I make. When it's puffed-up a bit add sugar as you mix.. and mix..
Two: You might consider turning on the TV before you start, and watch some series as you mix. Do not hurry this up, great things take time! Mix for at least 15 minutes. No, it is not too long. If you're like me, you don't have a pastry filling tools, so just spoon out the cookies onto your cookie tray (cookie sheet makes everything easier to clean afterwards!)
Tree: Put it in the preheated oven, at 150C (let me convert that for you: 300F) and leave it in for an hour. Then turn the oven off, open it up and let meringue cool completely.
(I said it: great things take time.. but they are worth it)
Only thing wrong with it:
it disappears from the plate withing seconds! :)
I must admit something: out off all the recipes I've shared over the years I've been here, and out of all the cookies and cakes I've eaten in my life.. meringue remains my favorite one. Nothing is better than that simple blend and strong spike of sugar rushing 'round my blood.
Have a great Friday!
