Carnival of the Recipes #125

Next week, our host will be Diabetic Recipes

so be sure to get your recipe submissions to

recipe.carnival@gmail.com by 12 p.m CST Saturday.

… two submissions from blogs named World Famous Recipes. One recipe from a dot com and the other from a dot org. Both would be fabulous endings to world class dishes. World Famous Recipes posts a number of sinful delights, including the Fried Apples, which certainly has caught my eye.

The other World Famous Recipes submits a delectable Brown Sugar and Cashew Fudge. Dr. Fuhrman might not approve, but I’m certain a wee bit will brighten your day! Anything in moderation, right? …

Coffee Meringue Valentine’s Day Kisses

Coffee Meringue Valentine’s Day Kisses

3/4 c Sugar
  3 ts Powdered instant coffee
  4 Egg whites, room temperature
  1 ts Vanilla extract
  1/4 ts Cream of tartar

Preheat oven to 250’F.

Use nonstick cookie sheets.

In a food processor with a metal blade, process the sugar and coffee powder until the texture of the sugar becomes very fine.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and vanilla extract with an electric mixer at medium speed, until very frothy. Add cream of tartar, and continue beating at medium speed until soft peaks form. Increase beater speed to high, and gradually beat in sugar-coffee mixture. Continue beating until soft peaks form and mixture has a glossy sheen.

To pipe cookies from pastry bag:
  Fill pastry bag (or 1-gallon freezer bag), fitted with Number 6 plain round pastry tube, with meringue.

Hold bag upright over prepared cookie sheets and squeeze out meringue, leaving pastry tip buried in meringue, until you have piped out a round about 1 1/2″ in diameter.
Lift up tip and stop squeezing.

Leave 1″ between cookies. Or, drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet, leaving 2″ between cookies.

Bake for 1 hour without opening oven door.

Turn off oven, and let meringues dry in oven 2-3 hours more without opening oven door. (After the first hour, it’s okay to peek just once.) At this point you can leave them in the oven overnight.

Remove the meringues from the cookie sheet with a spatula. Store in airtight container.

Makes about 3 dozen.
