On a Sweeter Note -- Egg Nog Meringue

We had a bunch of egg whites left over from making custard for our english trifle that we were making for Sunday dinner today and I googled some uses for them and decided to make meringues.

Preheat the oven to 275F
2 egg whites
1/3 cup icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 drops egg nog flavoring (available at candy making stores, try something else if you don't have this kind, and let me know how it turns out)

While this isn't the recipe that I found (I modified it) I would have to say that the outcome is incredible!

Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, but not until they are too dry. Gradually mix in the sugar. Stir in the vanilla and flavoring.

Pipe or spoon the mixture onto a cookie sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes. Cool and enjoy.

They really are amazing, and I don't even like meringue.
