Ingredients

  • 4

    large egg whites

  • 1

    cup superfine sugar

  • 1/4

    tsp lemon extract (or 1/2 to 1 tsp lemon juice) just add to taste!

  • 1

    tsp lemon zest

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F In a large bowl, whisk or beat egg whites together with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar two tablespoons at a time, mixing between additions to ensure the sugar dissolves. Continue mixing until egg whites are stiff and glossy. (I am not that particular about adding it 2 tablespoons at a time. Add a little, stop, add a little, stop. Repeat process until all sugar has been added!) Fold in lemon extract and lemon zest, then drop by tablespoonfuls onto two large parchment-lined baking sheets. (I don't fold, I mix. Still works perfectly!) Place in oven for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Turn off oven and leave door slightly open. Leave meringues for at least 2 hours or overnight. Store in an airtight container. Yield 30 cookies
