I made a batch of Antonia's RI three weeks ago. I didn't have enough meringue powder, so I used one egg white as well. It has been in the fridge, with no coloring. Is is ok to use for a cookie order for Thursday?

Thanks for the help...don't want any one gettin' ill on my watch!!!

You know, it is probably 'safe', but to be on the safe side, I would not use it for a customer. Egg whites are the culprits when it comes to Salmonella. It wouldn't bother most people, but......

Compared to the cost of a little more powdered sugar, it just wouldn't be worth it, to me.
