RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

DIAMOND STUDDED MERINGUES, American

Ingredients
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon red food coloring
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • Silver dragees
Preparation Instructions

Place egg whites, vinegar, vanilla, food coloring and salt in bowl. Beat until frothy. Add sugar gradually, about a tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is stiff and glossy. Lightly fold in the rolled oats.

Place meringue in 12 mounds on ungreased wrapping paper on cookie sheets. Using a spatula spread meringue out from center and build up sides to resemble a pie shell. Outline edges with silver dragees. Bake in a very slow oven (275° F.) 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool thoroughly. Remove from paper. Serve filled with Raspberry Bavarian. Makes 12 meringues.
