I tend to stay aways from confections in which their success depends so greatly upon atmospheric conditions inside and outside my kitchen. ok... ok... I've never made meringues just because the thought never really occurred to me. *ding* Had I known how easy they are to make (not to mention pretty), I would have used these on my Christmas cookie platters years ago. Being a novice meringue maker, I followed this recipe exactly, but piped the meringue into little kisses onto parchment using a large star tip. Once I crushed the candy cane, it was sooo sticky, but mixing in a little white sugar helped loosen it up for sprinkling purposes. Maybe it was beginners luck, but my meringues were completely dry, crisp and airy by the recipe's recommended time. So I think the success of these depends not only upon kitchen conditions but also the size of the meringues. Thank you, Kathy, I very much look forward to impressing friends and family with my newly found confectionary skills.... ;).
