Lemon meringue kisses


  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon butter
  • icing sugar mixture, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 150°C/130°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat eggwhites until stiff peaks form. Add caster sugar. Beat for 8 minutes or until sugar has dissolved.
  3. Place mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 5mm fluted or plain nozzle. Pipe 2cm wide swirls of mixture onto prepared trays, allowing 2cm between each for spreading. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until meringues are firm. Turn off oven. Allow to cool in oven with door slightly ajar.
  4. Sandwich 2 meringues together with 1/2 teaspoon lemon butter. Repeat with remaining meringues and lemon butter. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
