Sweetheart's Dessert

Sweetheart's Dessert
Appropriate for:



3 egg whites, chilled
½ cup granulated sugar


Pre–heat the oven to 275° F., beat chilled egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then slowly add granulated sugar. On parchment paper draw 4 hearts as your outline (3 ½ inches at the widest by 3 ½ inches in length). Place the parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Fill the heart outlines with meringue, causing a dip or bowl like indentation. Bake the meringue for 1 hour, turn off the oven, don't open the door and leave the meringue in the oven over another 2 hours. This will dry out the meringue. After cooled, store the meringue in an air tight contain for up to 3 days.
