This is a good standard meringue. You can add 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar to help stabilize the meringue if you like.

never made a meringue before but this turned out PERFECT!! couldn't get much easier than this! shirley

This recipre was okay

This was a very easy recipe, tastes delicious and it came out perfectly. The only thing I omitted was lemon extract because I didn’t have it in the house.

I didn’t have lemon extract, but it sounds good. The trick with meringue is to have a dry bowl and beaters, and to not overbeat it. Worked for me.

So easy and taste great!
