Basic meringues


  • Preheat the oven to 100ο C (210ο F) set to fan.
  • To make the meringue, you need a mixer and you have to make sure that its bowl is spotlessly clean.
  • In the mixer’s bowl add the egg whites, the salt, the vanilla extract, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium-high speed, for about 2 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the granulated sugar in 3 batches and keep beating until the sugar is dissolved and fluffy, for about 5 minutes.
  • As soon as the meringue is fluffy and glossy, have a taste to check that the granulated sugar has been completely dissolved. If it hasn’t, keep beating for a little longer.
  • Add the icing sugar and beat for 10 more seconds until the mixture is homogenized.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and transfer the mixture to a pastry bag with a 10 mm French star pastry tip.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add a little meringue under the parchment paper, to all 4 corners, so that the parchment sticks well onto the baking pan.
  • Shape the meringues on the baking pan that is lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 2 hours. 
  • Remove from the oven and let the meringues cool completely for 30 minutes.
  • Serve.
  • You can store them for about 7 days, sealed in an airtight jar at room temperature.
