It’s Christmas cookie season!
I’ve been listening to the Christmas station on Pandora radio non-stop. Additionally, The tree is up, the house is covered in lights, and I’m left with this feeling of “I think I need more Christmas decorations.”
I’ve never made meringues before. I think that if I were to do this recipe again, I would have used a glass mixing bowl over the simmering water as I think my metal bowl was heating up too quickly, and I ended up taking the egg / sugar mixture off before all the sugar had the chance to melt as I didn’t want it to get too hot. The cookies ended up ok, so I guess you don’t have to be too precise. Additionally, I read up a little bit about meringues, and you need to make sure that you are using a very clean and dry bowl before starting your mixture.
