Finally being able to make meringue!! Yes it's true, this simple yet tricky mixing of egg whites and sugar has eluded me for the past few holidays. Whenever I have tried to make it it always came out to runny and not at all like the beautiful glossy peaks you see in the recipes. What's the secret you ask? Room temperature eggs (I left mine out overnight) and a heat proof bowl. I mixed my ingredients in a plastic bowl, making sure it was squeaky clean beforehand (any oil can contaminate the egg mixture). That's it, that's all!
My family are serious foodies (my parents cooked a "test" turkey a few weeks ago). So I decided to make a test pie at home first, as to make sure it would not disappoint. I found this recipe in the Nov issue of Martha Stewart. Trust me when I say this pie is as delish as it looks! I'm off to watch the rest of the Macy's Day Parade in my pj's! Have a healthy happy Thanksgiving :)
