Meringue [muh-RANG] Very simpl, a meringue is a mixture of stiffly beaten egg whites and granulated sugar. In order for the sugar to dissolve completely and therefore produce an absolutely smooth meringue, it must be beaten into the whites a tablespoon at a time. Soft Meringue is used as a swirled for pie, puddings and other desserts such as Baked Alaska. It’s baked only until the peaks are nicely browned and the valleys golden.
Hard Meringues begin by being piped onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. They’re usually round and my be large or small. Then baked at a very low temperature for as long as 2 hours and left in the turned-off oven until complete dry. Hard meringues often have a center depression that is filled with ice cream, custard, whipped cream and/or fruits. Tiny, one or two-bite size, mound-shaped meringues are called “kisses” and are eaten as a confection. Kisses often contain chopped nuts, cherries or coconut etc. They may be baked until completely dry or until crisp on the outside and chewy inside.
