French Meringues

Lucy's picture
French meringues are baked vanilla meringues made with eggs whites and sugar along with cream of tartar. These baked french meringues may be used with and as desserts of choice. I prefer to fill the centers with fruit pulp or ice cream by removing the soft at times for fun!
