Never Fail Meringue

chef.mark's picture
This never fail meringue recipe is a tried and tested meringue recipe. I use this meringue over cakes and bakes for decorating or just as a topping.
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon
  Cold water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg whites 3
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Vanilla 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 6 Tablespoon

Combine the first 3 ingredients; cook in the microwave until thick and clear.
Beat egg whites with salt and vanilla until a soft mound is formed.
Add 6 tablespoons sugar gradually, beating well after each addition.
Add cold cornstarch mixture.
Continue beating until meringue is stiff.
Top pie, etc.and follow your recipe to brown.
Mom says you will never have the meringue stick to the knife when you cut the pie.
