Pumpkin meringues


  • Preheat the oven to 100°C (212° F) set to fan.
  • For the meringue, you need a mixer and you need to make sure that the bowl is spotlessly clean.
  • With the mixer's whisk attachment on medium speed, beat the egg whites, the orange food coloring paste, salt, and vanilla, until fluffy.
  • Add the granulated sugar in 10 batches and wait until it becomes fluffy.
  • As soon as it turns fluffy and glossy, have a taste of the meringue to see if the granulated sugar is entirely dissolved. If not, keep beating for a little longer.
  • When the mixture is ready, add the icing sugar and beat for 10 more seconds, until it is homogenized.
  • Put the mixture into a pastry bag with a star pastry tip and shape the meringues – pumpkins on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.  
  • Bake for 2 hours.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let the meringues cool completely.
  • Dip a toothpick lightly into the black food coloring paste and shape the eyes and mouth.
