Helpful Tips For Making Successful Meringue
Making meringue can be a little tricky, which is why a lot of people never even attempt to make it.
Here are a few successful tips for making meringue for cookies.
Every recipe is different but I find these tips helpful in any recipe that features meringue.
- Fresh eggs offer the best texture. If you use old eggs you can find that it can make the meringue not turn out.
- Ensure you use room temperature eggs are very helpful!
- Cream of tartar when making meringue is a must in my opinion.
- Superfine sugar will give you sweetness without any grit.
- Follow the recipe, it is very important. Meringue is not a type of recipe you can add your own spin on very easily.
How to Store Meringue Cookies
Store meringue cookies at room temperature for up to two weeks.
There is no need to refrigerate meringue as long as you keep your cookies in an airtight container.
Storing meringue this way will keep moisture from making your meringue cookies soggy.
You may also want to add a sheep of wax paper in between if you plan to stack your cookies on top of each other. This will help keep them from sticking to each other.
