I found this recipe on – it had great reviews which is always a good sign so I decided to give it a go.Make sure you leave enough time for these – they take about 5 hours all up – because they are cooked nice and slow in the oven {2.5 hours} and then left in there until the oven is cool {about 3 hours}. Meringue Recipe – by Sarah HobbsYou will need:4 egg whites at […]
