A friend of mine recently gave birth to twins. Our family brought them food to help during their adjustment to a family of five. Sharing meals with a family during times of transition is such a help. I try to make a main dish, side and dessert. This time I experimented with a new recipe for dessert. I made Nutella Meringues.
I didn't think I had the patience for meringues. In the past I could never get the eggs to stiff peaks and ended up with lump cookies. This time everything worked perfectly. The eggs were beat to perfection, and the nutella added a delightful richness. I packed up half the cookies for our friends. The remaining cookies disappeared fast. Everyone wants me to make them again. It was a definite success.
