Easy No Weep Meringue Recipe

1. Combine sugar, cornstarch and water in a saucepan, or microwave, and bring to a boil, cook until thickened. Remove from heat.

2. In mixer bowl, beat egg whites, and 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Gradually add hot syrup and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.

3. Spread over warm pie filling, seal edges to crust and sprinkle with a few shreds of coconut, if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned to your liking. Cool.

General Storage: Unopened dried whites should be stored in a cool and dry place. Once opened, they should be refrigerated.

Follow the directions below for reconstituting because it takes longer

for the powder to dissolve than the label states.

X-Large 4 6 12

Large 4 8 - 10 2 -14

Medium 5 8 16

Small 6 9 18

To reconstitute egg white or meringue powder, just follow the manufacturer’s instructions for powder and water measurements. However, when dissolving the powder, it can be stubborn. So:

1. Use tepid (not hot) water, which helps to dissolve it.

2. Sprinkle the powder on the water, stir it to moisten all of it. Let it sit for a good 5 minutes, stirring half way through. Some of the powder will clump and stick to your spoon so I like to use a chopstick to minimize it. Rub the clumps in between you thumb and forefinger and try to dissolve. If they are hard, discard.

3. Once dissolved, be sure to stir the mixture well. If you whip it slightly with a whisk it should foam — that means it’s done.

4. If you find undissolved hard clumps of powder, unfortunately you have to start over; they will not dissolve on their own even when the recipe bakes.

Meringue powder: ONE LARGE EGG WHITE = 1 tablespoon of meringue powder plus 2 tablespoons warm water. Meringue powder is another pasteurized egg white product. This is dried egg whites with sugar, cream of tartar and cornstarch. The powder like dried egg whites, is pasteurized and completely safe from harmful bacteria. It is used for royal icing, meringue and boiled icing. Meringue powder can be used to make safe meringue for pies and other desserts. Meringue cookies are easy to make, as well.

General Storage: Unopened dried whites should be stored in a cool and dry place. Once opened, they should be refrigerated.

Egg whites: Keep 1 - 3 months. To freeze, place egg whites in a Pyrex custard cup, tightly covered. Some freeze one egg white per ice cube cavity in an ice cube tray, and then transfer them to a plastic, airtight bag. One large egg can be substituted for 2 large egg whites. The whites whip more easily and to a greater volume than fresh egg whites, because their surface tension is reduced through freezing and thawing, giving them greater foaming power.

Egg yolks: If you are separating all the eggs, you can save the yolks to use later in another recipe. If freezing alone, becomes gummy and not usable when thawed. So, add in: per 1/4 cup egg yolks, about 3 - 4 (1 egg yolk = 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon), mix in 1/8 teaspoon salt, if eventually making a savory recipe or 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoon of sugar or corn syrup, if eventually making a sweet one. The salt or sugar protects the egg proteins.
