Day 13: Meringues

Today's recipe is for meringues.  These cloud-like cookies are delicious as a treat on their own or to accompany some fresh berries.

4 egg whites
1 cup sugar

1) Whisk eggs and sugar over medium low heat in a sauce pan until temperature reaches approximately 130F on a candy thermometer.
2) Transfer to an electric mixer and beat on high until fluffy and cooled to room temperature.
3) Using a 2D star tip, pipe 1/2" rosettes onto a parchment  lined baking sheet.
4) Bake meringues at 200F for about 2 hours until crisp all the way through.

NOTE: we will use these meringues as part of tomorrow's recipe as well.
