Raspberry & Lemon Meringue Sandwiches

Mindy here from Creative  Juice!
Today I am sharing my
{raspberry & lemon}
meringue sandwiches
get ready to drool…
if you follow my blog or have ordered my book 
then you already know that i have an obsession with macarons. 
well…i also have an obsession with meringues.
one day i want to have the tagline: 
mindy- the master of macarons, meringues, and marshmallows.
it has a nice ring to it 🙂
the reason i love meringues? they are super versitile in flavor and color AND shape.
today i made pink raspberry rose shaped meringues.
which are yummy on thier own… but i ALSO filled them with lemon whipped cream!
these would be perfect at a girly birthday party or baby shower!
 
Raspberry Rose meringues

4 large egg whites

1 cup sugar

1 Tbsp. meringue powder

1 tsp raspberry extract

pink food coloring

Combine egg whites, sugar, and meringue powder in a double boiler

Whisk on low until sugar dissolves and liquid is foamy and hot to the touch

Transfer to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment  

Whisk until stiff peaks form.
Add the raspberry extract and pink food coloring and whisk to combine.
Place the meringue in a large pastry bag fitted with a wilton 2D tip
Line baking sheets with parchment paper 
(TIP: I place magnets in the corners to keep it flat. remove before baking)

To pipe the rose, hold the bag vertical in the center point of the rose. 
Begin piping and move outward in a concentric movement while continuing to hold the bag vertical. Release pressure on the bag and lift the tip to finish.

Preheat oven to 175 degrees and cook for 1.5-2 hours. 
Leave the pans in the oven for another hour to cool.

Serve immediately or place in an air tight container for up to a week. 


 

Lemon Filling

2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tbsp. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Lemon extract 
1 Lemon zested (optional)

Whip Cream and powdered sugar until soft peaks form.
Add in lemon extract and zest and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
Fill meringues and serve immediately 
(NOTE: do not fill meringues and store them – the moisture will errode the meringue. Fill right before serving) 

my official taste tester approved…clearly…

 

aren’t the pretty? 
the perfect thing to serve at your next girly party!

happy entertaining
