"This is a Puerto Rican recipe. The meringues are as light as a cloud and not messy, you can make a lot of them, and they have a hint of lemon."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cream of tartar
1 1/3 cups
grated lemon zest
When I saw Puertorican in the recipe I had to try it. I was not disappointed at all. These are exactly the same I use to eat at the bakery back home. They melt in your mouth. My only suggestion is that I left them in the oven with the oven off, until they cooled down. It helps in them to get completely dry before removing from oven. Thanks so much! :
They were a little too sweet for me. I wish I would have put in 1/2 or 2/3 the sugar.
Wonderful! I've made this recipe twice now, once with orange zest and once with lime zest and it was delicious each time. Crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle - perfect!
I loved the hint of lemon in the recipe- it was like eating a piece of lemon meringuep pie! I think next time I makes these I'll divide the batch into 3s and put lemon zest in one, lime zest in the another, and orange zest in the third for a nice, light variation.
I didn't have parchment paper on hand so instead i greased a pan and placed it on the top rack. Also i didn't have any lemon zest on hand as well so i added vanilla extract and mini chocolate chips.
Wow!! These are just like the merenges from the Cuban bakery that I love. The only thing I changed was to add vanilla rather than the lemon zest. MMMmmmm. crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Perfect!!! I will make these every time I have extra egg whites.
Truly authentic merenges. (crisp outer/moist center..the way they should be) I haven't tasted Merenges this good since I bought them years ago at a fancy bakery. 275degrees, for 30 min., was perfect!! I did use the parchement and they practically slid right off when done. I too substituted vanilla extract for the lemon zest. I will be making these often!
I added lemon extract with the zest. They melt in your mouth.
