How to Make and Bake Meringue

To beat and bake a meringue always use cold, fresh eggs.  

Too much sugar causes a meringue to liquefy; if not baked long enough the same effect is produced.


  • Beat the whites until frothy; then add to each egg white one level tablespoon of powdered sugar.
  • Beat until so stiff that it can be cut with a knife.
  • Spread on the pie and bake in slow oven or with the oven door open until a rich golden brown.
