It makes 20 to 30 and all you need is...
1 egg white
Food colouring (any colour you like will do!)
300g Icing sugar (confectioners' sugar)
^ That's all!Method:
1. Break up the egg white with a fork and add the food colouring, any colour, but we used pink this time, then stir in enough icing sugar to make a thick paste and kneed the dough until it is smooth and even.
^ Here Grace is holding some of the dough we made in a bowl. This is only a little bit compared to how much it really makes! :)
2. Line your turntable with a paper towel. Roll balls the size of a marble or bigger and place them well spaced on the turntable.
^Here Grace is again, with the little balls the size of marbles on a paper towel. You can only put 3 to 4 on at a time.(I suggest you use a plate underneath the paper towel, because without it the meringues may burn!)
3. Cook on 100 percent power for 1 to 1½ minutes, depending on the size. Watch in amazement as the balls puff out to make crisp meringues. Serve sandwiched with cream to improve, and don't forget the most important part; have fun!
^ These are the meringues after they have been microwaved - such a fantastic recipe!
