***NEW YEAR'S EVE MERINGUE SNOWFLAKES*** INGREDIENTS 4 Fresh cold egg whites 1 drop Lemon juice 225g Extra fine granulated sugar.
Whip egg whites & juice in a "squeeky" clean stainless steel bowl on high speed until just foamy. Add sugar in a slow steady stream & whip until stiff peaks form (about 3-4 mins). Put meringue into a pastry bag which has been fitted with a plain tip (about 1/2" opening). Preheat oven to 200F. Pipe snow flake shapes onto silicone paper lined trays & bake for 2/4 hours until crispy, but white still in colour. Serve with gourmet coffee or champagne!
