Today I made some yummy Lemon Almond Meringues from
Joy the Baker! They're lovely light cookies with a hint of lemon from
lemon zest and a splash of lemon juice. Then there's toasted ground
almonds in the cookie, and sliced almonds on top!
I have a thing for egg whites! If I see any recipe with egg whites
in it, I have to try it!! I recently made Italian Amaretti which also
had ground almonds and egg whites in them and they were fab!!
and numerous Meringue Cookies!
These Meringues easy peasy but so pretty that they look like you've
spent hours in the kitchen making them!! Just whip the whites,
slowly incorporating the sugar, add the lemon juice, then the rest
of the ingredients and your done! Next pipe or spoon the meringue
onto a parchment lined baking sheet....
I used a star tip to pipe the meringues....
then I dusted them with powdered sugar...
and sprinkled with chopped, sliced almonds. I pressed the
almonds in a bit to make sure they stayed put. After they baked
and cooled I sprinkled a little more powdered sugar on them.
I thought they were cute sitting on my vintage Hanson Scale!
A pretty and yummy teatime treat! xo!!
