Gianna’s and Gabi’s Meringues With Berries

This is a recipe that Gianna and Gabi did after the making of our Flan Pâtissier to use the egg whites stored in the fridge.

Ingredients:

For the meringues: 5 egg whites, 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
For the berries: Three cups mixed berries fresh or frozen and 2 tablespoons sugar.
For the filling: 8 oz whipping cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier

1. Preheat oven to 250ᵒF
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until foamy
4. Begin to add the sugar, a spoonful at a time
5. Add the cinnamon
6. Continue to beat until the meringue is very glossy and forms stiff peaks
7. Spread about 1/2 cup of the meringue into a 3-inch circle on the parchment paper to make individual meringues
8. Shape a rim around the edges
9. Continue to make more meringue shells spacing evenly across the baking sheet
10. Bake for about 1 hour 1/2 or until firm
11. Turn off the oven, leave the meringue shells in the warm oven for another 1/2 hour, then cool completely
