We are iced-in today. No school, so the girls are mighty happy. Thought we'd make some heart-shaped meringues - a trial run for Valentine's Day next month...
I used a new (and very simple) recipe that I found on Epicurious. I followed the recipe exactly, but colored the meringue two pretty shades of pink. I piped out my meringue hearts free-hand, but if you are a perfectionist you can trace cookie-cutter hearts onto the back of your parchment paper and use them as templates to follow.
I also sprinkled them with a few of my favorite pastel non-pareils.
As if they weren't sweet enough already. :-)
