How to Make the Perfect Meringue
Sweet and low in fat, meringue is a versatile pastry ingredient used both in traditional dessert recipes and in more innovative ones. Most everyone knows meringue as the light, billowy peaks atop a classic lemon meringue pie, but meringue can also be piped with a pastry bag into shapes, baked to form a firm pie shell, and dried to a sweet, crisp cloud to cradle other treats.
Meringue uses just two basic ingredients—superfine sugar and egg
whites—to make the sweetest and most mouth-watering desserts.
