2016 10 29 Meringues - First attempt!!

In Lunenburg Louise gave me a Master Class in making meringues. Of course watching the master at work was wonderful especially when I got to scrape the bowl and taste them straight out of the oven when the inside was still gooey.

I was determined to make these delicious dainty mouth size bites and Louise made sure I had the vital ingredient - pure vanilla extract. On the way to the airport we stopped off at the supermarket to ensure I had the real stuff!!

Louise's meringues are all the same size and shape and look perfect. As you can see from mine that did not happen. My first go with an icing bag and it was out of control!! My sister was in fits of laughter and was trying to give me directions!! As you can see from the finished meringues they are all shapes and sizes. However they taste fabulous and I will definitely be making them again. We just happen to have brought home from Devon some Clotted Cream - a marriage made in heaven I think!!!!

Many thanks for your lovely comments on yesterday's uploads showing our trip on the Cabot Trail. So very much appreciated especially when I saw one on the PP today!!
@weezilou - Louise they taste better than they look!! LOL!!

The look delightful Pam, I'm sure you did Louise proud. I've never made them myself, but might one day, but only if I get the Master Class session with Louise first. :)

Oh Pam, they're WONDERFUL! If they taste as good as they look, it was a home run! Best of all, they don't take a lot of expensive ingredients, so make them again and make them often (you saw that's what I did!) And piping, here's what you say to yourself as you position each one: Squeeze...tiny wrist twist, stop squeezing...and lift. If the bag is quite full at the start, you're holding it closed with your right hand, and controlling the squeezing with the left. All that, however is a nuance! Enjoy them! I rather think you will!

Oh! I used to make these every year for Christmas and called them cotton candy kisses, but now where I live it is far too humid and they just dissolve.

@pixiemac remember Louise made these for us when we were in Chicago?

Well done - crunchy on the outside and soft on the inner! Put them together with that lovely clotted cream would be so delicious!

Knowing that you visited Louise in Lunenburg, I knew where you learned this!! We've tasted some of her meringues here in southern CA. Great shot.
