So classic, and such a simple dessert! You can even make them with kids.  Meringue cookies are simply calling for spring and romantic moments. Sweet, light and an absolute eye candy. You can also pop them on top of a cake or other desserts to achieve a special effect. 

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add sugar and lemon juice while beating. Line the bottom of a baking tray with parchment paper and press small dollops of the egg white mixture on it. Place egg white mixture in a piping bag fitted with a very large round or star tip. Pipe meringue dollops onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. 
Bake at 80 °C, top and bottom heater, for 120 minutes. Let them stand on the cookie sheet until completely cooled. Store at room temperature in an airtight containter.

These crunchy little cookies are so light and airy, you'll want to make them soon. Pretty good way of celebrating spring if you ask us. And why not make them with a little twist.  You can easily change the colour or the flavour by mixing in some edible colour or extract once the meringue mixture is whipped. 

Personal factory of perfect taste: built-in ovens

HomeMade shape The characteristic rounded shape is one of the most beneficial features of Gorenje ovens. Inspired by traditional wood-burning ovens, it enables hot air to move around freely. Since the food is heated evenly and from all sides, it is always perfectly done: crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
