Recipe Fridays!


Sweet Bones

Meringue can be a pain in the ass to make, but nothing compares with that crunchy, light-as-air taste that literally melts in your mouth. And, these are so frigging cute!

Ingredients
Makes about 18
6 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Put egg whites and sugar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set bowl over a pan of simmering water; whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture feels warm to the touch, about 5 minutes.

Return bowl to mixer, and fit mixer with the whisk attachment.Beat on high speed until very stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes.

Transfer meringue to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain round tip, such as a Wilton #1A. Pipe bone shapes, each 5 to 6 inches long, onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper (as shown below). Bake until crisp throughout, about 1 hour. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
