Meringue topped Mince Pies for Day 11
This idea came from Shirley via facebook and I’m so pleased it did – a great twist on the traditional mince pie!
Who loves a Toffee Pecan Meringue Roulade at Christmas?
This is the perfect dessert to make ahead and store in the freezer. Just right for whipping out, defrosting and serving up in a flash.
5 egg whites, large
2 tsps cornflour
225g light muscovado sugar
40g pecans, chopped
250ml double cream
So this is the other half to my Using up Egg Yolks post – what to do with a random number of egg whites. Well for me it’s a quick batch of meringues of course!
Here’s my handy table for a batch of meringues with any random number of egg whites:-
And here’s the method…
Just a quick something simple for Halloween Treats! Meringue is fast to whip up and the stripes are dead easy too – obviously this is a Halloween version but the technique can be used for all sorts of occasions in every colour under the sun – including red stripes for Christmas and a drop of peppermint extract for a candy cane version.
Just a bit of fun with the children – these meringues will not win any prizes in the taste stakes but rate highly in amazement factor! The boys have loved doing these this holiday, they’re so quick and easy. I never knew you could do such a thing until a chance conversation with the lovely ladies at Baking Hot Celebrations (and if you’re not sure who I’m talking about head on over and have a peek).
On the twelfth and last day of The Pink Whisk Christmas I’m sending you ….. Golden Christmas Meringues!
A great dessert this Christmas, make the meringues in advance, store in an airtight container and then whip them out and fill for a really quick and impressive treat.
Biscuit, marshmallow and meringue – all in one go! These sweet treat kebabs are perfect wedding treats with brilliant wow factor – ideal for dipping in a chocolate fountain. This idea came from a Martha Stewart project and of course has the Pink Whisk twist with Raspberry Sherbet Marshmallows.
