Meringue

Meringue is a type of dessert made from whipped eggwhites[?] and castor sugar[?]. Meringues are often flavoured with a small amount of essence, eg almond or coconut. They are very light and airy and extremely sweet.

Meringues are baked at a very low heat for a long time - they are not supposed to be browned at all, but they need to be very crisp and dry. Cooked meringue cannot be refrigerated or it will become soggy.

Meringue can be used as the basis for various other desserts including Pavlova, Baked Alaska[?] and Lemon meringue pie[?].
