Snowballs / Meringue Cookies

Snowballs / Meringue Cookies

(Recipe from 180 Every Day Cakes & Bakes)
Makes about 20

2 egg whites
115g/4 oz/1/2 cup caster sugar
15 ml/ 1 tbsp corn flour (cornstarch), sifted
5 ml/ 1 tsp white wine vinegar
1.5 ml/ ¼ tsp vanilla extract

  • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F and line two baking sheets with baking parchment.
  • Whisk the egg whites in a grease-free bowl, using an electric whisk, until very stiff.
  • Add caster sugar, a little at a time, whisking after each addition until the meringue is very stiff and glossy. Whisk in the corn flour, vinegar and vanilla extract.
  • Using a teaspoon, mound the mixture into snowballs on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cool on the baking sheets, and then remove the snowballs from the paper with a metal spatula.

These meringues contain the magic ingredients that gave them a chewy centre than being crisp throughout. You can mix the cornflour, white wine vinegar and vanilla extract together in a small bowl and sprinkle it over the mixture before finally folding it in if you like.

I am sending these goodies to:
2- Champa's Bake off event.
