Thank goodness for a thread like this because I've been wanting to shout - I HATE MERINGUE POWDER!!!!
I made Antonia's icing and absolutely LOVE the consistency of it, but could not stand the bitter taste left by the meringue powder (I dipped a spoon into it before I took it off the KA). I added more and more vanilla and couldn't get that bitterness out of it.
I am so glad to know it will taste fine on the cookies - I was hoping, paired with MMF, that it would.
THANK YOU ALL!
to Bob & Melvira, the same thing happened with DM and my brownies... I'm ashamed to say my chest puffed up a bit when she said they were the BEST she'd ever tasted, better than hers... she's my toughest critic and the hardest EVER to get a compliment out of!
