- 2 small or 1 large egg white
- 1/3 superfine sugar
- A few drops or red food coloring
- Whipped cream, to serve (optional)
- 2 baking sheets, covered with parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Put the egg white in a clean, grease-free bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Whisk in the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until the meringue is thick and glossy. Add a few drops of red food coloring with the last tablespoon of sugar to achieve a pretty rose pink. Dollop teaspoonsfuls of the meringue mixture on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them well apart, and bake in the oven for about 1 ¼ hours until crisp. Turn off the oven and leave the meringues in the oven to cool. Serve plan or sandwiched together with a little whipped cream.
