I don't really care for the standard meringue cookies that are made at home. They are chewy and have a large hollow space.
I would really love to find a recipe to make meringue cookies that are like the Miss Meringue cookies. Those are the kind you can find in some stores; they come in a round plastic container and there are flavors like chocolate, mint chocolate chip, vanilla, etc. They're very crispy all the way through, and fairly solid.
Thanks so much!
This is what Miss meringue cookies look like in the package.
In searching the web, I found there is a contest currently to win a trip to Paris. You have to make a recipe using Miss Meringue cookies in it.
getting them crisp usually requires leaving cookies in the turned off but still warm oven for an extended time period so that they dry out completely
Yes, I've done that, but they still tend to be chewy and have that large hollow space. Thank you though!
I bought some of the Miss Meringues today. They are really dense. I'm almost thinking that they are made with a different kind of meringue. The website said they use a French recipe. All of the meringue recipes I have tried just have you whip up the egg white * sugar until stiff peaks. I'm thinking there is something else, like maybe making a sugar syrup and mixing that in, similar to one of the meringue frosting recipes. Does anyone have a recipe like that?
