I was makind little meringue cookies yesterday, and one of the batches had an accidental yolk fragment fall in prior to beating. It, obviously, did not stiffen properly, and so now looks simply like thick cream, but despite extra meringue powder, it never acquired that meringue texture. I threw it in a tuppeware, and continued with my other stuff. So, in the meantime, I have a container full of creamy, wimpy, uncooked "meringue" ... any thoughts on what I can do with that?

Thanks for the bump ... I'm going to give myself another one here before I decide to throw the stuff out. Thanks for any suggestions!

*Shrug* I just throw adulterated egg whites away. Once a bit of yolk gets in there, they're not of any use to me. Luckily, eggs are cheap! icon_smile.gif

Just for future reference, when that happens to me I just save them till the next day and make a lovely omlet. LOL Since you have added meringue powder and whipped them, I don't think that will work now. Sorry. I would just toss them at this point.
