There are some helpful tips that you will want to know when it comes to making meringues for quick and easy pie recipes. Meringues are known as the light, with the billowy peaks that sit on top of lemon meringue pies. Meringue can also be put in a pastry bag and piped into shapes, that are then baked to form pie shells, along with being dried meringue cloud treats. Meringue recipes usually use two basic ingredients to include superfine sugar and egg whites. And the sugar in a meringure not only adds sweetness, but it helps to stabilize the egg whites by coating them with fine sugar so that they can be beaten longer and not dry out as fast. The sugar used in a meringue also decreases the volume and lightness of the meringue recipe, so it is crucial that the sugar is added slowly, and not added before the egg whites have been whipped to four times their original volume. The amount of sugar in the recipe and the method will vary depending on the use of the meringue. Less sugar in a meringue recipe will help to create a softer meringue that can be used for toppings on cakes or pies while more sugar in the meringue helps to create a firmer meringue that can be used for piping into shapes.
