Super easy, 2-ingredient meringue crisps, made in the microwave. Serve as sugary treats with tea/coffee or top with fresh fruit & barely sweetened whipped cream for a luscious dessert
Recipe type: Dessert & Confectionary
Cuisine: French
Yield: 30-35
  1. In a glass mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy and doubled in volume. No need to worry about peaks and stiffness.
  2. Sift the icing sugar over the egg whites, little at a time, and mix well between each addition. It will get glossy and smooth and then become more dough-y. Continue to add and mix until it forms a soft and pliable dough.
  3. If adding colour and/or flavour essence, do so now and mix. If it makes the dough wet & sticky again, add a few more spoons of icing sugar to bring it back to the right texture.
  4. Use a melon baller to scoop out equal portions and roll them into smooth balls.
  5. Place them on a large plate lined with kitchen paper, leaving at least 2" space between them, as they will puff up on cooking.
  6. Microwave them in batches of 3-5, depending on the size of your microwave, on High/Full Power for 1 min 30 secs per batch.
  7. Remove from the kitchen paper immediately (and carefully as they will be hot) to avoid sticking and transfer to wire racks to cool completely. They should sound hollow when tapped (almost like a ping pong/table tennis ball).
  8. Once cool, store in airtight jars or good quality ziplock bags.
  9. Serve as is as a sugary treat along with tea/coffee or top with fresh fruit and barely sweetened whipped cream.
