Blue meringue

This recipe belongs to my mom. For this batch I've added blue colouring and almonds (50 g.). Almonds in meringues add a little texture to the finished cookie and when you take a bite the small pieces of almond shine white surrounded with blue - creative, yes?

Meringue - (Recipe de Nelson) - Makes about 50 meringes

3 egg whites (90 g.)

225 g. sugar

Put whites and sugar in a pot. Mix it with a fork. Heat it until 40 C (use a baking themometer). Then put it in a bowl and whisk using an electrical mixer for 20 minutes. If you want to you can now add colour and almonds like I did.

Preheat oven to 175 C.

Use a pastry bag or two teaspoons to make small meringues on your baking sheet (with parchment paper).

Bake in mid-oven for 5 minutes, then turn the heat down to 100 C and bake for another 50 to 70 minutes (depending on the size of the meringues).
