Meringues


This is the “macaroons” which we used to get in a local bakery at my place. Everyone at home, be it my parents, aunts, uncles or cousins, are crazy about this. I knew that the main ingredient of macaroons was egg white, but did not know that it was totally egg white.

Just saw the recipe of an easy cookie like stuff in youtube and prepared this. I couldn’t believe that it tasted the same as what we used fight for – Macaroons.


Ingredients:

Egg white                               --    3 eggs
Cashew nuts                          --    ½ cup
Sugar                                      --    1 cup

Preparation of Meringue:

Preheat the oven to 200 F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper / greased foil paper.

Pour the egg whites into a clean bowl. Make sure the bowl is clean with no traces of any oil and the whites are separated without any traces of egg yolk. 

Whisk the egg whites using an electric beater. Add sugar little by little. Whip until the whites form soft peaks.

  

Add the chopped cashew nuts and fold in well.



Drop spoonful of mixture on baking tray. Place them an inch apart. 

  

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour. 



Let it cool completely and store in an airtight container.
