Party Recipe: French Meringues

I found these beautiful meringues while searching for white party desserts.  They are perfect for any bridal shower or engagement party.  I love the simplicity and classiness of these hearts.  I think I’m going to use them on top of a basic brownie.  So easy but so pretty.

French Meringues

4 egg whites (room temperature)
2 1/4 cups confectioners sugar

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. Line baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.
Whip the egg whites until foamy. Slowly add all the sugar in small bits. Mix in Kitchen-Aid on medium speed for 30-40 minutes until satiny and looks like whipped cream.

Place in pastry bag and pipe into desired shape (I used a large star-shaped tip with my bag)
Place in oven and put a wooden spoon in the oven door to keep it slightly propped open (this will avoid getting cracks in the meringues)
Bake for 3 hours.
Make sure they are completely dry before pulling them out of the oven.
Allow to cool completely & store in an air-tight container.
