I am not a baker and therefore,
No bake meringues
1 room temperature egg
8 oz or more of confectionery sugar
two drops of food coloring (optional)
Separate egg white and discard yolk.
Add food coloring if desired.
Add sugar to egg white and gently mix together.
Combine ingredients with your hands until smooth dough forms (The mixture might become sticky, add a little more sugar)
Line a plate with parchment paper
Roll dough into marble size pieces and place on plate, making sure there is sufficient room in between each. (They will expand 4X their size)
Place in microwave for 40 seconds. (microwave time will vary)
Remove from microwave and allow meringues to dry for 30 seconds prior to removing from paper.
Repeat until all the dough has been used.
It is very important that the egg be at room temperature, or the meringues will not rise.
Experiment with size and cooking time. The dough will expand by 4X its size when cooked.
