Variation: Nut Meringue

Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe classic meringue, above
  • 1 cup slivered almonds (or other nuts)
  • 1 ounce cornstarch
Directions
  • Before making the meringue, whirl the almonds in a food processor fitted with the metal blade until finely ground. Add the cornstarch and whirl again. Make Meringue. Fold ground almond mixture into finished meringue by hand.

  • Here, cornstarch insulates the meringue from the fat in the nuts, which would otherwise cause it to break down.

  • Easy way to pipe out disks of a particular size: trace a plate or other object of appropriate size onto parchment paper. The turn the paper over and use the circles as your guide. Start piping in the center and form a tight spiral out to the edge.
