Meringues with cream of tartar


- 4 medium egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar
- 225g of powdered sugar

  • basic rule: use 55g powdered sugar for each egg whites, eggs must be at room temperature, if you keep eggs in the fridge, remove them for a minimum of 2 hours before whipping
  • preheat the oven to 140 ° C
  • spread the baking paper on the baking sheet.
  • pour the protein (no impurities from the yolks) into a large, thoroughly cleansed (to be sure you can wipe it with a cotton swab soaked in lemon juice, then remove any leftovers of fat) and a dry bowl with cream of tartar powder. Choose the largest bowl you have
  • start tamping at low speed, increase the speed as foam thickens. When the foam is very stiff, you can add sugar. Do not overdo it, the pierced foam is sweating and can fall off
  • add 3 tablespoons of sugar at a time and mix quickly after each addition. Stop when the mass is thick, fluffy and creates 'spikes' when pulling the agitators
  • spread out the weight on paper after about 2 heaped spoons, leaving enough room for them to be able to expand a little and not be merged together.
  • bake on a low shelf for 45-60 minutes until they harden outside, then turn the oven off and let it cool down with the door open for 30 minutes to 'come' inside.
