Today I wanted to share my recipe for Rose Water Meringues. I made them for my daughter Abbie's fifth birthday party, and had a request for the recipe.
I've had great results with this recipe, and if I keep the baked meringues in an airtight container, they keep well for 5 days or more.
Rose Water Meringues
2 egg whites, room temperature
100 grams extra fine granulated sugar
1 tsp rosewater
drop pink food color (gel)
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. In a mixing bowl with whisk attachment, whisk egg whites to soft peaks. Begin adding sugar a spoonful at a time, whisking 20-30 seconds after each addition. Continue whisking until mixture is stiff & shiny and all sugar is dissolved. Add rose water (or any flavor extract you care to use) and food color and whisk until incorporated.
Using a piping bag fitted with a 1M open star tip, pipe meringues onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Here is a tutorial on how to pipe a rose swirl. Top with sprinkles if desired. Bake for 2 hours or until completely dry and crisp.
This is the sweets table for my Marie Antoinette inspired birthday party. In my next post, I'll share the recipe for the french cream.
Have a lovely day!
