Brown Meringue Nests Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 8

3 egg whites
A pinch of cream of tartar
175 g/6 oz soft dark brown sugar


Whisk the egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff. Whisk in the sugar 15 ml/1 tbsp at a time, whisking well between each addition, until stiff and glossy. Use to fill a piping bag fitted with a large star tube (tip) and pipe eight nests well apart on baking parchment on a baking (cookie) sheet. Alternatively, spoon the mixture into mounds and hollow out to form nests. Bake in a preheated oven at 120C/250F/gas mark 1/2 for about 1 hour or until crisp and dry. Turn off the oven and leave there until cold. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
