Fluffy and Light Meringue

This recipe is a no fail meringue base that you can use to make little mini meringues or individual baskets. The texture holds up well and dries nicely in a low oven. You can pre-make the meringues and keep them for up to a week in an airtight container. However do not fill them until you are ready to eat or within a couple of hours of eating and keep as cool as possible until ready to serve. Raspberries also make a delicious alternative to strawberries for the filling.

  3. When the meringues are cooked peel off parchment paper and allow to cool on a wire rack. Whisk the cream and add 1 tablespoon icing sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla, whisk further.

      I know that formatting dilemma. I've been creating one set of instructions in the recipe capsule, but using a full width photo and a text capsule underneath with details depicted in each photo.

      I'll check out some of the other recipes!

      Thanks Paul - I hope your wife enjoys them . I was trying to match the photos with the instructions which is why they are small, but thanks for the compliment. I have posted other wheat free deserts on hub pages too.

      I love your photos. They look so good, have you tried formatting them the full width?

      I've been looking for gluten free dessert options since robin/wife isn't eating wheat products.
