Be mine, valentine


4 eggs whites

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup golden eagle syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Food coloring of your choice

Pinch of tarter

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees. Line two bake sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Combine sugar, egg whites and tartar in the bowl from your mixer over simmering water, making sure your bowl is not touching the water. Constantly whisk the egg whites until the sugar has dissolved. Attach the whisk attachment on a stand mixer or a hand held mixture, slowly beat egg mixture. Add in vanilla extract and any food coloring. Slowly increase the speed and continue to beat mixture until stiff peaks have almost formed. The mixture is ready when the whisk attachment dipped into mixture leaves a curled but stiff peak when removed. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with an open star tip and pipe your heart shape onto the sheet pans. Bake for 2 hours, then turn off the oven and leave the door slightly ajar for meringues to cool down with the oven. Store meringue cookies in an airtight container away from any heat or moisture.
