The whites of 4 eggs.
1 cup of caster sugar.
2 teaspoons cornflour
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon rose essence
Pink Food Colouring

Preheat oven to 300F
Whisk egg whites until they form soft peaks.
Continue to beat as you gradually add the sugar.
Sieve cornflour onto meringue mix.
Add vinegar and essence.
Carefully fold ingredients together.
Swirl in a little pink food colouring.
Do not mix too well if you want a marbled effect.
Form meringue shapes on a lined baking sheet.
Put in the oven and turn temperature down to 250F
After half an hour turn oven off.
Leave in the oven to cool completely.

Result: Cute little pale pink rose-scented soft-centred chewy meringues with a crispy outer shell made for La Dolce Vita's In the Pink Breast Cancer Awareness event. If you like, sandwich pairs of the meringue together with a little creme fraiche and decorate with dried rose petals.

Archive Alert! Oooh - quite a lot happened on this day in 2004. First I made a stink. Then I met our lovely Pim for the very first time. Where? At the Chowhound Picnic, of course!

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for finding the time to join in despite your work schedule. I adore anything that's rose flavoured, so even though I'm allergic to eggs, your meringues are making me drool. (The lovely pics don't hurt either.)

    Thank you for participating!
