New: Mini Pastel Meringues

Here is my first new product of the year – I think having a break over Christmas has got my creative juices flowing again. Everyone’s thoughts turn to lighter foods at this time of year, but sometimes we still need to offer up a delicious dessert, so how about mini pastel meringues?

Here they are, just about to go into the oven. The mixture seems to hold its shape well, so would adapt to any piped shape quite well, so if you prefer swirly meringues, that would be fine too.

You will have to imagine them sandwiched with whipped cream, mascarpone, a lemon curd or conserve and served up with a healthy portion of berries. I supply them plain, as below, so you can serve them however you wish. They would make a lovely dessert or a wonderful addition to an afternoon tea.

You can see are crisp on the outside and very soft and chewy on the inside. They keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks, so you can even plan ahead with these! They can be made in any pastel shade as well.

All I know is that once my boys had tried one, the entire batch disappeared. Very light and moreish…
