Simple and original dessert from my home country, Guatemala. It can make a nice coffee break a little more special and it's really easy to make.

  • Combine white sugar and egg whites in a saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring constantly, until well blended and heated through, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour white sugar and egg white mixture into a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.

  • Scoop beaten egg whites into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe into small swirls onto a baking sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 15 minutes. Turn off oven and keep baking sheet inside as oven cools, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Add food coloring to the egg whites in step 2 if desired.
